Governor Rendell's office released the terms of a Pennsylvania Turnpike concession yesterday. Highlights include: For more details, see Peter Samuel's excellent overview at, as well as the Philadelphia Inquirer's article yesterday. And be sure to check out this blog post on Reason's recent policy brief (finding that the Turnpike is one of the least cost-efficient toll roads in the country), as well as Bob Poole's astute response to criticism of the report by the PA Turnpike Commission. Lastly, over the last few months, the Inquirer ran two op-eds co-authored by yours truly and Commonwealth Foundation President Matt Brouillette on the subject of a Turnpike concession--see here and here.
