Mon-Fayette Expressway and Southern Beltway; Public Private Partnership; Informational Meeting
[38 Pa.B. 4855]
[Saturday, August 30, 2008]
The Turnpike Commission will host a meeting to provide information to potential private partners interested in financing, designing, constructing, operating and/or maintaining all or portions of the Mon-Fayette Expressway and Southern Beltway projects in Fayette, Washington and Allegheny Counties in southwestern Pennsylvania. The informational meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 17, 2008, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Harrisburg East, 4757 Lindle Road, Harrisburg, PA 17111.
The informational meeting will focus on available opportunities associated with the completion of the unfinished segments of the Mon-Fayette Expressway and Southern Beltway and details of the solicitation.
The 50 miles of limited access tolled expressway not yet under construction include the 24-mile Mon-Fayette Expressway project in Allegheny County north from PA Route 51 in Jefferson Hills to Interstate 376 in Pittsburgh and Monroeville and two independent but interconnected Southern Beltway projects that would extend the beltway system another 26 miles south and east of US Route 22 in Robinson Township to the existing Mon-Fayette Expressway in Union Township, Washington County.
Environmental clearance has been obtained for the Mon-Fayette Expressway project and is expected to be obtained for one of the Southern Beltway projects within the next month. Environmental clearance for the other Southern Beltway project is expected to occur in late 2008 or early 2009.
These sections are contiguous with other sections of the Mon-Fayette Expressway and Southern Beltway that are open to traffic and currently being operated by the Turnpike Commission.
Participants are encouraged to preregister for the meeting by September 12, 2008, by means of the Turnpike web site at www.paturnpike.com by selecting the ''P3 Project'' menu item on the left side of the main page.
