Allegheny County Could have as Many as 60 Bridges Constructed as Public-Private Partnership Projects
January 23, 2014
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette recently published an article about how Pennsylvania’s Department of Transportation (“PennDOT”) plans to replace at least 500 decaying bridges across Pennsylvania via public-private partnerships (“P3”). According to the article, nearly 60 of those bridges are located within Allegheny County, with another 23 in neighboring Westmoreland County and another 13 in Butler County. The Post-Gazette reports that PennDOT hopes to get construction underway on 50 to 100 bridges in 2015 and that the party or parties with whom PennDOT contracts for the construction of the bridges will also maintain the new bridges for a period that may be as long as 40 years.
