Held Feb. 4 in the Alaska Airlines Center, the four-hour fair showcased a diverse array of nearly 60 projects representing planning efforts and existing plans for all transportation modes within Anchorage. The free, family-friendly event was a collaboration of the Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (DOT&PF), Municipality of Anchorage, Anchorage Water and Wastewater Utility, Alaska Railroad and Port of Anchorage.
Jim Amundsen, Central Region Highway Design Group Chief for Alaska DOT&PF, says this year marked the fair’s return since similar events were held in 2007 and 2008. He notes that both the attendees and the participating agencies benefit from the experience.
