RFI for PennDOT truck parking P3

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation's (PennDOT) Public-Private Partnership Office has issued a request for information (RFI) for a commercial truck parking P3.

The authority is seeking feedback from the private sector on the development, design, construction, implementation, maintenance, operation and commercialization of truck parking facilities.

PennDOT is considering the P3 model on a statewide, district, county and municipal level to satisfy commercial freight transportation needs.

"Pennsylvania's status as a critical freight connection and distribution point is growing every day and we expect exponential freight growth in the future," said Leslie S. Richards, PennDOT secretary and P3 board chair. 

"Truck volumes need to be considered from a traffic perspective, and this process to hear from the public and explore innovative delivery options works toward our goal to ensure safe operations and options for the people moving all of these goods on our roadways," Richards added.

The authority is open to the possibility of holding face-to-face meetings with respondents following the submission deadline.

Responses are due by December 12.
