PennDOT Accepting Grant Applications

Proposals are being accepted by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation from private sector group for transportation project grants.

The grants will be awarded for projects involving PennDOT owned projects, infrastructure and services.

The agency’s Office of Public-Private Partnerships is overseeing the grant process.

In a news release, PennDOT said private-sector partners are encouraged to submit proposals offering innovative ways to deliver transportation projects across a variety of modes, including roads, bridges, rail and ports.

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

The Public Private Transportation Partnership Board will review the proposals.

Additionally, the private sector may submit applications for non-PennDOT-owned assets. Transportation entities outside of the governor’s jurisdiction, such as transit authorities and the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission, may establish their own timelines or accept proposals year-round, PennDOT officials said.

The state’s P3 law allows PennDOT and other transportation authorities and commissions to partner with private companies to participate in delivering, maintaining and financing transportation-related projects.
