A Public Private Partnership (P3) is a partnership formed by a public entity (Georgia
DOT), and a private company or group of companies. Such a partnership allows the
State to better allocate the limited resources we have for transportation projects
by leveraging private sector innovation and capital.
Georgia DOT has implemented a P3 program that will deliver much-needed mobility
improvements and support our state’s ongoing economic development needs. Such projects,
due to their magnitude and associated costs, would likely be beyond the Department’s
ability to pursue through traditional project delivery methods. P3 creates a framework
that makes these projects possible, accelerates their delivery and brings additional
transportation options to the traveling public.
The Georgia DOT P3 program is also responsible for the development of sponsorship
opportunities. Sponsorships will generate revenue that will be used to offset the
cost of services provided. Currently the below is a list of projects that include
A free, state-of-the art phone service that provides real-time travel assistance
24 hours a day
Roadside motorist assistance in metro –Atlanta
Rest Area &
Operations and maintenance costs at the 17 rest areas and 9 welcome centers along
the Interstate Highway System in Georgia.
