Arctic Strategic Transportation and Resource (ASTAR) Planning

The Arctic Strategic Transportation and Resources (ASTAR) project worked with North Slope communities and regional stakeholders to identify infrastructure development projects that offered the most cumulative benefit by prioritizing community and cultural connectivity, regional support, reduced cost of living and increased safety. The project was a collaborative effort initiated by the Alaska Department of Natural Resources in partnership with the North Slope Borough.
