PennDOT seeks P3 proposals for rail, other projects
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation's (PennDOT) Office of Public-Private Partnerships (P3) announced this week it will accept unsolicited proposals for transportation projects from the private sector through Dec. 31.
Proposals must address PennDOT-owned projects and infrastructure. During the application period, the private sector may submit proposals offering "innovative ways" to deliver projects across transportation modes including rail, bridges and ports.
Proposals also may include more efficient models to manage existing transportation services and programs.
"By accepting unsolicited P3 proposals, we are encouraging others to propose innovative or partnership projects that they think will benefit the commonwealth and Pennsylvanians," PennDOT Secretary Leslie Richards said in a press release.
Private sector entities also may submit applications for non-PennDOT-owned assets directly to the P3 board now through Dec. 31, department officials said.
Instructions for submitting a project and information on the unsolicited proposal review process are available on the state's P3 website.
