BRADENTON, Fla. — The Georgia Department of Transportation on Friday released its solicitation for qualified firms to do the state’s first public-private partnership, a plan called the West by Northwest Project that is designed to bring needed traffic-congestion relief to metropolitan Atlanta.

A concession ultimately will be granted for the design, construction, financing, operation, and maintenance of 29 miles of reversible managed lanes along Interstates 75 and 575, and pre-development activities for another 27-mile segment along I-285 and I-20.
