The Puerto Rico Public-Private Partnerships Authority within the next three weeks will receive bids from private operators on a concession agreement for the island’s busiest toll road.

The commonwealth is looking to enter a long-term lease agreement with a private operator for Route 22, a 52-mile toll road that runs east-west along the north side of the island including San Juan, in return for an upfront payment. Included in the privatization initiative is Route 5, which is connected to Route 22 and extends for four miles.
