A consortium led by Goldman, Sachs & Co. will pay a total $1.43 billion to maintain and operate Puerto Rico’s busiest toll road for 40 years.

Puerto Rico officials Monday announced the government will receive an up-front payment of $1.08 billion from Goldman Sachs Global Infrastructure Partners II LP and Abertis Infraestructuras, based in Spain. The commonwealth will retain ownership of Route 22, a toll road that runs for 52 miles through the north side of the island, and Route 5, a four-mile toll road that connects to Route 22 and runs south of San Juan.
