Two P3 applications to move forward

PennDOT said it's forwarding two applications for public-private partnerships, or P3s, to the board tasked with reviewing and approving such partnerships for transportation projects.

The department had received six P3 applications since asking for the unsolicited proposals in early May, but just two will go forward with final reviews, PennDOT said today.

The first proposal is from Chester County-based Site Acquisition Services Inc. to market all of the state’s existing structures, including bridges, signs and buildings, where wireless antennas and equipment could be placed. The idea is to sign up wireless service providers to use those facilities to increase signal strengths.

The second proposal comes from Bentley Systems Inc., also of Chester County. It wants to replace PennDOT’s automated permit routing and analysis system, also known as APPRAS, with new systems that can enable multistate permitting for haulers.

Both proposals are scheduled for consideration at the September meeting of the P3 Transportation Board. The meeting date and time have not yet been finalized, according to PennDOT.

Two other proposals it received – for high-speed wireless networks along waterways in western parts of the state and for construction of a new operations center for Harrisburg-based Capital Area Transit – need to be studied further before being recommended to the P3 board, according to PennDOT.
