2022 Marked an Impressive Year in the Field for MTA
Like most Alaskans, our dedicated field crew are no strangers to the state’s frequent severe weather. But what they are able to physically accomplish through challenging ice, snow, wind and other elements of our rugged terrain is truly remarkable.
2022 began with a historic windstorm impacting MTA’s service territory, with gusts of up to 50 mph causing hazardous conditions and severe wind chill. The year ended with the deepest snowfall in December since the 1950s.
Project milestones last year included completing utility relocation work for the Knik Goose Bay Phase 1 road project and ongoing network upgrades and deployment projects throughout the Mat-Su Valley.
Additional 2022 project milestones that helped set our team apart included:
This work isn’t self-serving – it helps to keep our members’ connections strong, our communities linked, and their economies stable. So, as we reflect on another highly productive year, we want to send out one final “thank you” to the men and women who brave the most extreme conditions to keep our communities connected. We know you will be there through whatever Alaska throws at us, making sure that we keep growing and keep moving forward.
