The state has amended a transportation plan to delay two large projects. Funds for the Knik Arm Crossing and the Juneau access road have been pulled from the current Statewide Transportation Improvement Program, or STIP.

Shannon McCarthy, a spokeswomen for DOT says STIP outlines how transportation funds are to be spent.

“So amendment 13 moved funding for Knik Arm and Juneau access road out to the next fiscal year,” McCarthy said. The amendment also corrected a funding error with the Inter-island Ferry Authority Vessel Refurbishment project .

Amendment 14 addresses scope, funding and scheduling issues on several projects around the state.
