The Northern Region Maintenance & Operations Division is headquartered in the Department of Transportation & Public Facilities building located at 2301 Peger Road, Fairbanks, Alaska.

Northern Region M&O is led by a Maintenance & Operations Chief and staffed by 370 full-time or part-time/seasonal M&O personnel, including superintendents, foremen, equipment operators, building maintenance specialists, and various administrative staff. The M&O management group includes a Regional Maintenance Engineer, seven District Superintendents, a Regional Buildings Maintenance Manager, a Regional Safety Officer, and one Administrative Officer. The Northern Region’s M&O response territory is approximately 370,000 square miles, 65% of the state’s total land area, and divided into seven districts: Tazlina, Tok, Fairbanks, Denali, Dalton, Valdez and Western.

There are 37 active maintenance stations in the Northern Region M&O system, each situated and staffed to handle the primary highway, airport, and building needs of adjacent segments of northern Alaska’s transportation infrastructure.

The region maintains over 8,800 lane miles of roads and highways (paved and unpaved) and 1,500 lane miles of airport surfaces. It cares for 376 bridges, 408 public buildings, one seaplane float pond, and 99 airports with 550 airport leases. Four of the largest “primary” airports; at Utqiagvik, Deadhorse, Kotzebue, and Nome are certificated by the FAA under the federal government’s Part 139 regulations, and operated to meet those crucial standards and guidelines. Local contractors maintain 60 of the region’s smaller, community airports, while DOT&PF maintenance crews manage and maintain the other airports – mostly via access from the state’s road system.

Northern Region Maintenance & Operations is responsible for all of the highways which parallel the entire length of the Alyeska Pipeline from the North Slope oil fields to the marine terminal on the shores of Prince William Sound, in Valdez.
