The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) Office of Public-Private Partnerships (P3) is accepting unsolicited proposals for transportation projects from the private sector through April 30.

The submission period applies to PennDOT-owned projects and infrastructure. During this period, the private sector can submit proposals offering innovative ways to deliver transportation projects across a variety of modes, including rail, roads, bridges, ports and aviation. Proposals can also include more efficient models to manage existing transportation-related services and programs, according to a PennDOT news release.

Instructions on how to submit a project and information on the unsolicited proposal review process can be found on the state's P3 website.

The private sector can also 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, can establish their own timelines or accept proposals year-round.
