Additional Details Available Regarding P3 Projects in Pennsylvania
April 25, 2013
PennDOT has recently created a website to publish information concerning Public Private Partnerships (“P3”). A P3 project is a contractual agreement between a public entity and private entity that:
- Transfers the responsibility of a transportion facility’s engineering, construction, operation and/or maintenance to the private sector for a defined period of time;
- Allows the private sector to perform by contract a service previously provided by the public sector; and
- Ensures the private firm receives payments either from existing revenue sources or through the collection of new tolls or user fees.
Additional information regarding the P3 program can be found in the manual describing the details of the program.
