Virtually via Zoom:


Please join the State of Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (DOT&PF) and the Denali Area Airport Planning Study (DAAPS) public involvement team for the official kickoff meeting for the project. We will provide an overview of the project’s purpose and process, and answer questions from the public. All are welcome to attend in-person or virtually.


DOT&PF will update the announcement after it is confirmed what the best option is for folks to join virtually.


The DOT&PF is conducting an aviation system planning study for airports serving the residents, visitors, agencies, and businesses of the Denali Borough. It is essential to the viability of this study that all stakeholders have a voice in the process. There are no foregone conclusions in the planning process; the data and stakeholder input inform the outcome. Recommendations can range from ‘do nothing’ to constructing a new airport, and anything in between.


The DOT&PF is contracted with RESPEC Company, LLC (RESPEC; formerly PDC Engineers) to lead the consultant team, which includes DOWL, Uqaqti, Information Insights, Liebowitz-Horton, Dryden Industries, and Marshal Arts Design. We are Alaskans, planning for the future, together.
