Nossaman Congratulates the Indiana Finance Authority, Texas Department of Transportation and Michigan Department of Transportation on Being Honored with NCPPP Project Awards
Nossaman congratulates the Indiana Finance Authority (IFA), the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) on being honored at the annual National Council for Public-Private Partnerships (NCPPP) P3 Connect Conference in Miami, Beach, Florida. The Conference took place between January 22 and January 24, 2018. IFA and TxDOT were both honored in the Infrastructure Project Award category. IFA was honored for the $1.18 billion Louisville-Southern Indiana Ohio River Bridges Project — East End Crossing (Lewis and Clark Bridge), which will create an estimated 15,000 jobs over 30 years, as well as an additional $87 billion for the regional economy. The project was delivered 23 percent cheaper than estimated and nine months earlier than the original schedule. TxDOT was honored for the $2.1 billion North Tarrant Express in the Dallas-Fort Worth region. It is one of the nation’s largest highway reconstruction projects to be completed in the past two decades—a 13.5-mile corridor that doubles the capacity of and decreases congestion on one of the region’s busiest roadways. Completed nine months ahead of schedule, and implemented much earlier than dictated by the state’s transportation funding model, the North Tarrant Express saves approximately $12.7 million per year. MDOT was honored in the Innovation Project Award category for its innovative, $125 million street lighting project that that replaced 15,000 bulbs with efficient LED versions across bridges, tunnels and roadways in the Detroit metropolitan region.
