WOBURN, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/22/14 -- Envista Corporation, the world's leading provider of enterprise right-of-way (ROW) coordination solutions via the web, today announced that the Municipality of Anchorage has selected Envista's Utility Project Coordination platform to more proactively coordinate projects and events in the public right-of-way while providing additional transparency for its Citizens by posting this information publicly through Envista's Citizen's View.
Anchorage has grown steadily to become the business, cultural and distribution center of Alaska. Nearly half of Alaska's 600,000 residents live in Anchorage. The municipality of Anchorage stretches nearly 50 miles from Eklutna to Portage Glacier, covering almost 2,000 square miles -- roughly the size of Delaware.
The Municipality of Anchorage will be providing capital project schedules and planned work to deliver real-time insights into construction and maintenance details, avoiding conflicts and minimizing disruption to the public. Department of Public Works Director Ron Thompson commented, "The Envista Utility Coordination platform will further assist us in maintaining the integrity of our Infrastructure in the Municipality of Anchorage and provide better coordination among our ongoing right-of-way projects and busy event schedule. Furthermore, Envista's web-based Citizen View will allow us to post this information and make it visible to citizens across the region in order to provide additional transparency and more effective traffic planning."
