Texas Legislators Want Their P3 Tool Back

Texas had its farmers’ revolt, then a legislative moratorium on P3s, and recently has seen some obvious toll-revenue concession projects go design-build due to the lobbying power of big local contractors and engineers.

But strong support for P3s is growing again in major metro areas, new projects are being hatched in the legislature, 183 managed lanes in Dallas and 288 in Houston are being procured now as P3 comprehensive development agreements (CDA), and TxDOT is hiring five consulting teams who will each be paid $25 million under six-year contracts to advise on CDAs. So it appears that P3s are rising again in Texas.
