East End Crossing: P3 in Action

When it partnered with Kentucky for new bridges across the Ohio River, Indiana exercised its authority to use a public-private partnership (P3) contract, as explained in this article that discusses this groundbreaking deal. The Lewis and Clark Bridge is a cable-stayed tolled bridge that is part of the Ohio Bridges Project to alleviate traffic congestion within greater metropolitan Louisville, Kentucky. Development of two new bridges that were to be the centerpieces of the Project was divided between Kentucky and Indiana, as well as approach work to the bridges and multimodal improvements. The Indiana Department of Transportation (IDOT) and The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KTC) followed different procurement routes for their individual responsibilities, with IDOT choosing a P3 approach, known internationally as an availability payment,for its bridge - the Lewis and Clark - and KTC electing for a design-build procurement for its bridge, the Abraham Lincoln Bridge. Details of each type of project delivery are presented here, with a focus on risk management, scheduling, and financing.
