Texas DOT Shuts Its P3 Unit

The resignation this month of Texas DOT’s central planner Russell Zapalac and disbanding of his specialized design-build/P3 office in Austin could be a boon for the consultants advising on alterative delivery projects. The pendulum has swung in Texas against tolls, P3s and big design-build projects. But the decentralization going on now will almost certainly leave TxDOT’s newly empowered district offices in need of help when the pendulum swings back, as it always has.
