Engineer Named Southcoast Regional Director for Alaska DOT&PF

Apr 6, 2023 | Engineering, Government, Right Moves, Transportation

Christopher Goins

Christopher Goins is the new Southcoast Regional Director for the Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (DOT&PF). In that position, he oversees a region that spans 1,800 miles from Ketchikan to Adak. The region contains 1,859 highway lane miles, 186 bridges, 44 airports, and 20 maintenance stations.

“Mr. Goins will do a great job leading our transportation programs in Southeast and Southwest Alaska” says DOT&PF Commissioner Ryan Anderson. “He has a proven record of accepting challenges and solving problems.”

Goins started at DOT&PF in 2014 working on infrastructure projects after nearly a decade of engineering experience in Oregon. He is a licensed engineer and earned his degree from Oregon State University in 2006. He lives with his family in Juneau.

The previous Southcoast Regional Director, Lance Mearig, is leaving state service. “We wish Lance the best and appreciate his contributions to Alaska’s transportation system,” Anderson says.

Welcome to the June 2024 issue, which features our annual Transportation Special Section. We've paired it this year with a focus on the Pacific Northwest and Hawai'i, as Alaska has close ties to both that reach far beyond lines of transportation. Even further out past our Pacific Ocean compatriots and our Canadian neighbors to the east, Alaska's reach extends to India and Singapore. Enjoy this issue that explores many of Alaska's far-flung business dealings.
