Socioeconomics and Funding Analysis
Project Lead: Mike Fisher
Working as a subcontractor on this project, Northern Economics provided a baseline assessment of Alaska’s socioeconomics and transportation funding and a more detailed financial assessment of transportation funding to support Alaska Moves 2050, the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities’ Alaska Statewide Long-Range Transportation Plan and Freight Plan. The financial assessment considered transportation spending by mode and DOT region, though detailed financial data were limited for most modes. As a result, the financial assessment presented data, data gaps, and a recommended plan for collecting data in the future to better support planning.
