WASHINGTON — The American Road and Transportation Builders Association will focus on a potentially trend-setting challenge to a prominent Virginia public-private partnership at the group's innovative finance conference July 24-26.

"At issue is a May 1 declaration by Virginia circuit court judge James A. Cales Jr., that the tolling provisions of the Elizabeth River Crossing project and others established under the Virginia Public-Private Transportation Act, violate the state's constitution," ARTBA said in a release. "The ruling is significant because the Virginia PPTA [public-private transportation act] tolling provisions are similar to those used in a number of other states and could provide a blueprint for opponents to challenge P3s nationally."
