PennDOT accepting public-private project ideas this month


The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation's (PennDOT) Office of Public-Private Partnerships (P3) is accepting unsolicited proposals for transportation projects from the private sector through Oct. 31, the department announced yesterday.

The submissions would involve PennDOT-owned projects and infrastructure. The proposals would offer innovative ways to deliver transportation projects involving roads, bridges, rail, aviation and ports. Proposals can also include more efficient models to manage existing transportation-related services and programs, according to a PennDOT press release.

The private sector also may submit applications for non-PennDOT-owned assets directly to the P3 board. Transportation entities outside the governor's jurisdiction, such as transit authorities, may set up their own timeline or accept proposals year round.

Instructions on how to submit a proposal can be found on the state's P3 website.
