California P3 Prospects Improve

Los Angeles Metro’s P3 program was driven off track a few months ago by the loss of its P3 highway staff and a dispute, still unsettled, with Caltrans over the state highway agency’s demand that counties rather than Caltrans pay for O&M on all state roads retrofitted with managed lanes. Now, working under marching orders from Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, LA Metro is seeking to regain momentum by hiring a full-time executive level P3 director to work with the existing two-person P3 staff. The new hire would replace David Yale, whose full-time job is Managing Executive Officer, Planning, Programming, and Grants Management. LA Metro’s board also is expected to adopt a new policy this month allowing its staff to evaluate unsolicited for P3 projects.
