This article focuses on the advantages of public-private partnership approach in the U.S. This approach is expected to grow because federal and state fuel tax revenue is lagging, and there is slim chance of increase in a period of record fuel prices. This approach can work better than public ownership. More private money will be available for investment, and projects will not be burdened by civil service rules or other public constraints.
