DOTD had published the project’s notice of intent in January (link opens in new tab) and received responses from contractors and consultants both within the USA and from other countries.  

The P3 arrangement is intended to provide the funding need for the replacement of the I-10 Calcasieu River Bridge.

“Interstate 10 is an extremely vital route for residents, businesses, and industries in Louisiana and those traveling from the west coast to the east coast,” said DOTD secretary Shawn Wilson. "This is a significant step in moving this much-needed project forward. This department is committed to continuing to use innovative means and best practices to meet our state’s infrastructure needs. While it is still early, this is an indication of the viability of this project and the global interest in partnering with the state."
