Transportation & Air Quality Conformity

A portion of the Fairbanks & North Pole area is designated a Carbon Monoxide Maintenance Area. An even larger portion has been designated a PM 2.5 Non-Attainment Area. In an effort to ensure that transportation improvements and future transportation development does not negatively impact regional air quality, it must be demonstrated that the projects listed in the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) and Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) conform with the Transportation Control Measures (TCMs) of the most recent State Air Quality Implementation Plan (SIP).

FMATS has completed the process of developing the Transportation Air Quality Conformity Determination for Carbon Monoxide for both the MTP and TIP.

Past reports can be obtained in theĀ FMATS Archives.
