Right Moves with Ryan Anderson

Governor Mike Dunleavy named Ryan Anderson as the new commissioner of the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities. Anderson most recently served as Northern Region Director for the department. He replaces John MacKinnon who served as commissioner since December 2018.

“Commissioner Anderson built an admirable record of achievement and public service during his tenure at DOT,” says Dunleavy. “He is widely respected across northern Alaska for cultivating positive relationships with all impacted stakeholders while completing vital public transportation projects on time and within budget. I look forward to working with him and fulfilling the department’s mission to Keep Alaska Moving through service and infrastructure.”

Anderson is a twenty-year employee of the department. He most recently served as its Northern Region Director, overseeing design, construction, maintenance, and operations of a transportation system that serves communities in a geographically and culturally diverse region that extends from the Gulf of Alaska to the Arctic Ocean and from the Bering Sea to the Canadian Border. He earned a bachelor’s degree in geological engineering from UAF in 1997.
