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

The proposals apply to PennDOT-owned projects and infrastructure and should address innovative ways to deliver transportation projects related to rail, ports, bridges, roads and aviation, PennDOT officials said in a press release.

Proposals also may include more efficient models to manage existing transportation-related services and programs.

Moreover, the private sector may submit applications for non-PennDOT-owned assets to the Office of Public-Private Partnerships. Transportation entities outside of the governor's jurisdiction, such as transit authorities, may establish their own timelines or accept proposals year-round, state officials said.

Pennsylvania's public-private partnership law allows PennDOT and other transportation authorities and commissions to partner with private companies to participate in delivering, maintaining and financing transportation-related projects.
