FINANCING TRANSPORTATION INFRASTRUCTURE THROUGH DIFFICULT PHYSICAL TERRAIN: LESSONS LEARNED AND OPPORTUNITIES GAINED

To finance highway, bridge or tunnel construction and operation in difficult terrain is a special challenge to the common methods of financing infrastructure. Such facilities cost more per mile to develop than similar facilities located elsewhere, but may receive less financial benefit from surrounding property owners and highway users, simply because difficult terrain is often more remote or less developed. Recent experience with public-private ventures in Colorado and California suggests that combining tolls with other sources of funding may be an efficient way to finance infrastructure.
