PennDOT opens P3 window

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is accepting unsolicited proposals.

PennDOT’s Office of P3 is accepting unsolicited proposals for transportation projects from the private sector through December 31.

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 roads, bridges, rail, aviation and ports. Proposals can also include more efficient models to manage existing transportation-related services and programs.

"We pride ourselves on our innovative approaches to transportation solutions," said PennDOT Secretary Leslie S. Richards. "By accepting unsolicited P3 proposals, we are encouraging others to propose innovative or partnership projects that they think will benefit the commonwealth and Pennsylvanians."

The private sector may also submit applications for non-PennDOT owned assets directly to the P3 board during this time.

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 next unsolicited proposal period will occur in April.
