Updated Oct 18, 2016

Pennsylvania-welcome-signThe Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) Office of Public-Private Partnerships (P3) is accepting unsolicited proposals for transportation projects from private entities through the end of October.

PennDOT accepts such proposals only twice per year. The next unsolicited proposal period is May 2017.

The open period, which applies to PennDOT-owned infrastructure projects, allows the private sector to submit proposals “offering innovative ways to deliver transportation projects across a variety of modes including roads, bridges, rail, aviation and ports.”

PennDOT says the proposals can also include “more efficient models” of managing existing projects and programs.

“The private sector may also submit applications for non-PennDOT-owned assets directly to the P3 board during this time,” the agency reports. “Transportation entities outside of the governor’s jurisdiction, such as transit authorities, may establish their own timelines or accept proposals year round.”
