Alaska Construction Manual

The Alaska Construction Manual (ACM) provides instructions for inspecting and administering airport, highway, and marine construction contracts for DOT&PF. The ACM incorporates the current policies and procedures of the Department with the statutory and regulatory requirements of State and Federal governments. It also references requirements that are conditions of our federal aid agreements.

If you have any questions or comments, please direct them to Jim Green, P.E., the statewide construction standards engineer. He can be reached at (907) 465-1222.
