Pennsylvania and New Jersey are looking to a potential public-private partnership to help finance replacement of the 50-year old Scudder Falls Bridge, which connects the two states over the Delaware River.
Pennsylvania Gov. Edward Rendell announced Friday that he and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie have directed the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission to release a request for proposals for legal and financial services for a potential P3 agreement. The winning team would develop a financing structure, bridge design, and P3 plan. The request for proposals is expected this month.
