About Us

The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities designs, constructs, operates and maintains the state’s transportation infrastructure systems, buildings, and other facilities used by Alaskans and visitors. These include more than 5,600 miles of paved and gravel highways; more than 300 aviation facilities, including 237 airports; 21 harbors; and a ferry system covering 3,500 nautical miles serving 35 coastal communities.

The department is administratively divided into three regions: Northern, Central and Southcoast.

The Southcoast Region, headquartered in Juneau, serves the coastal communities of Alaska encompassing a population of 98,000. Currently, only four Southcoast communities are connected to the continental highway system – Skagway, Haines, Hyder, and Valdez.

The Alaska Marine Highway System is headquartered in Ketchikan. From there, AMHS management directs the operation and maintenance of our fleet of ten vessels, ranging in size from the 181 ft. M/V Lituya to the 418 ft. M/V Columbia.
