Public-Private Partnerships: Case Studies in Infrastructure Development demystifies this innovative solution to the challenges of designing, financing, building, and operating major infrastructure projects. In today s world, partnerships between public agencies federal, state, and local and private companies are an increasingly popular policy tool. At a time when infrastructure in the United States and elsewhere is aging and public budgets are shrinking, public-private partnerships (PPPs) permit planners to leverage limited funds, while private firms embrace these relationships as an unfolding and potentially profitable global market. But what separates a successful partnership from one that fails to deliver on its promise? In this book, Sidney Levy brings a balanced perspective to the history and development of the PPP movement. He outlines different approaches to defining and planning a PPP, supplemented by a history of PPP toll roads in the United States. He describes the key players in a PPP deal and provides case studies of the projects in Virginia, Illinois, Florida, Canada, and Mexico. This compendium of practical detail on public-private partnerships is essential reading for civil engineers, engineering managers, construction contractors, developers, and government officials involved in or contemplating a major infrastructure project.
