Pennsylvania opens application for P3 transportation proposals
Pennsylvania – The Office of Public-Private Partnerships (P3s) at the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) began accepting unsolicited proposals on October 7 for transportation projects from the private sector.
During this period, the private sector can submit proposals for PennDOT-owned projects and infrastructure. The state is interested in innovative ways to deliver transportation projects across various modes including roads, bridges, rail, aviation, and ports. Proposals also may include more efficient models to manage existing transportation-related services and programs.
Unsolicited proposals are being accepted through October 31. PennDOT holds an unsolicited proposal period in April and October each year.
The private sector also may submit applications for non-PennDOT-owned assets directly to the P3 board during this time. Transportation entities outside of the governor’s jurisdiction, such as transit authorities, may establish their own timelines or accept proposals year-round.
Pennsylvania’s P3 law allows PennDOT and other transportation authorities and commissions to partner with private companies to participate in delivering, maintaining, and financing transportation-related projects.
