How Do I Determine Who Maintains a Particular Light?

Metal light poles along a roadway, intersection or sidewalk are typically maintained by the Municipality of Anchorage, Street Light Maintenance.


MOA Facility Maintenance

Trails, Parks and Municipal Properties

If the light is on a trail, in a tunnel, or on city property such as a park, The Facility Maintenance Division  is the department responsible for maintaining these lights.


MOA Transit (People Mover)

Green pedestrian lights which can be found at bus stops are maintained by MOA Transit.


State of Alaska DOT

Street Lights on roadways such as the Glenn Hwy & Seward Hwy (see map) are owned and maintained by the State of Alaska DOT Public Facilities. The exception to this is at signalized intersections where MOA Street Maintenance maintains the intersection lighting.

If the light is mounted to a wooden power pole, it is maintained by the power utility for that service area. ML&P serves North of Tudor Rd between Arctic Blvd & Boniface Pkwy, Chugach Electric serves South of Tudor Rd and homes East of Boniface Pkwy up to the Glenn Hwy.
