About Us

811 Alaska Digline, Inc. is a one number, centralized pre-excavation messaging center between excavators and underground facility owners.  Notices of Excavation are taken 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM Monday through Friday, we are closed all major holidays. It was established in 1988 to enable the public, contractors, utilities and other excavators to notify underground facility owners of planned digging activities with just one call.

Time and money can be saved by utilizing 811 Alaska Digline within your organization. Damage to facilities, loss of equipment, loss of revenue and repair crew time is costly and time consuming. By routing “facility locate” requests to 811 Alaska Digline, underground facility owners eliminate the need for additional staff during the construction season.

Alaska Digline Agents pinpoint the reported area of activity through its database and upon validation, sends the standardized information to participating subscribers, via direct dial (fax or modem). Two to ten working days advance notice of starting date is required, depending on location.

Participating members benefit from the streamlined and standardized information as a member of  811 Alaska Digline. Each location request is verified and members with facilities in the area are notified of planned digging activities. Municipalities are able to share the information with multiple departments from one site.
