Welcome

This Alaska Statewide Active Transportation Master Plan (ASATP) provides an updated approach to active transportation planning for Alaska. It recognizes the progress that has been made, the future of active transportation, and sets a framework for how to plan for and measure progress toward a vision for increased and safer active transportation opportunities and activity levels across the state.
