Open for Public Comment: MTP Existing Conditions Report

The 2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan Existing Condition Report is now open for public comment.

Existing conditions of the multimodal transportation system within the Fairbanks Metropolitan Area Transportation System (FMATS) boundary are summarized in this document. The memo documents the multimodal improvements that have been made since the last Metropolitan Transportation Plan update and reports on the safety conditions and operations of the system. This is part of a larger effort to update the current 2040 FMATS Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP), which was adopted in 2015.

The comment period will close on October 20, 2017.
