The Act allows the Department of Transportation to accept and evaluate unsolicited proposals from private entities and to enter into contracts for public-private initiatives for transportation system projects. It provides a period of time for contractors to submit competing bids. The Act also increases the amount of funding that the Department of Transportation can contribute to these projects.
