On October 8, 2010, the four Federal land management agencies and the ADOT&PF regional planning chiefs met in Fairbanks for a project coordination meeting to discuss opportunities to better coordinate planning and project delivery. Prior to the meeting, each agency and state planning region was asked to prepare a five year list of projects, which were compiled on a state-wide map for discussion. Since the last coordination meeting in December 2009, participants have been coordinating on a substantial number of projects, including:

  • ADOT&PF Northern Region is working with NPS to incorporate a northbound turning lane into the Riley Creek Bridge replacement at the entrance to Denali
  • ADOT&PF Central Region, with the support of USFWS, applied for a Tiger grant for a grade separated wildlife crossings on the Sterling Highway located on the Kenai Wildlife Refuge
  • BLM and ADOT&PF Northern Region were able to coordinate gravel crushing on projects
  • USFS has been working with ADOT&PF Central Region on a project in the Russian River area near the Sterling Highway entrance to the Russian River campground
