Virginia launches first P3 pipeline
As well as eight ‘candidate’ projects, which have already been identified as priorities, the pipeline of projects identifies an increased amount of partnerships between the private sector and a more diverse group of public sector agencies.
Potential partnerships include the Virginia Commercial Space Flight Authority, the Department of Motor Vehicles, as well as more traditional transport authorities under Virginia's Public-Private Transportation Act (PPTA).
"We are seeking private sector input on potential PPTA projects. These projects are ultimately successful investments for Virginia because together the Office of Transportation Public-Private Partnerships' and our private sector partners create tremendous synergy, offering the very best of government and private sector innovation and financing," said Virginia’s Governor Bob McDonnell. "This is a very exciting time for Virginia business and transportation."
The pipeline is broken down into two sections. All projects would involve Virginia’s Department of Transportation, except where mentioned otherwise.
