This article begins with a description of the first highway public-private partnership in Colorado, US 36 Express Lanes (Boulder-Denver Turnpike Reconstruction project), examines the attractiveness of P3s to public entities, then delves deeply into the history of P3s throughout the United States. Notes that there is a growing fear that state and local governments are giving away too much, that P3s often fail to deliver the improvements they promise, and threaten the core value of roads as a public service.
