Partnership: Transportation Sector: Operations of public roads and highways
Description: In 2006, two private companies, Cintra Concesiones de Infraestructuras de Transporte and Macquarie Infrastructure Partners, were awarded a project to operate a 157 mile stretch of Indiana’s public roadways. The partnership of private companies paid the state a one-time fee of $3.8 billion for a 75-year agreement to operate the roadway in exchange for the revenue from the tolls.
Benefit: The project is estimated to save the state of Indiana about $100 million per year in operating costs.
