AS 19.20.040. Acquisition of Property and Property Rights.

For the purposes of AS 19.05 - AS 19.25 the department and a municipality may acquire private or public property and property rights including rights of access, air, view, and light, for controlled-access facilities and service roads by gift, devise, purchase, or condemnation in the same manner as they may now or hereafter be authorized by law to acquire property or property rights in connection with highways in their respective jurisdictions. Property rights acquired under AS 19.05 - AS 19.25 shall be in fee simple. In acquiring property or property rights for a controlled-access facility or service highway in connection therewith, the municipality may acquire an entire lot, block, or tract of land, if, by so doing, the interests of the public will be best served, even though the entire lot, block, or tract is not immediately needed for the right-of-way.
