The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is accepting proposals for partnerships with private industry through October.
Companies can submit proposals to team with the department on road, bridge, rail, aviation and port construction and maintenance. Proposals can also address ways to manage existing transportation-related services and programs.
Proposals will be accepted by PennDOT's Office of Public-Private Partnerships through 11:59 p.m. Oct. 31.
The state’s P3 law allows PennDOT and other transportation authorities and commissions to partner with private companies on transportation-related projects. As part of the P3 law, the seven-member Public-Private Transportation Partnership Board was appointed to examine and approve potential public-private transportation projects.
Already in place is an $899 million partnership with Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners, a company financing, replacing and maintaining 558 state-owned bridges through 2018.
