2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) - Amendment 1

A 30-Day Public Comment Period is going on now! 

Reason for the Amendment: The Alaska Cargo and Cold Storage warehouse facility project is in part funded with Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development (BUILD) federal grant funding from 2020. A project receiving BUILD funding must be consistent with State and local plans, including the long-range transportation plans of Metropolitan Planning Organization such as AMATS. As such this project must be added to the 2040 MTP through this amendment.
