The Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (DOT&PF) will perform an independent Corridor Analysis of the route between Tetlin and Ft. Knox in response to public concerns over the proposed mining development, and plans to truck ore between the two locations. Additionally, the department will bring together a Transportation Advisory Committee to participate in the analysis, review the work, and make final recommendations.

“Safety for all users along our transportation network is one of the department’s core values,” said Ryan Anderson, DOT&PF Commissioner. “This analysis will allow us to address public concerns on this important highway corridor.”
