We recognize that the funding, purchase or sale of toll roads is a highly complex financial and political decision. More importantly, there can be substantial economic benefits associated with toll roads: free flow of traffic, saving due to reduced commuter time, improved fuel economy and efficiency, reduced pollution and greater safety.

Our toll road professionals have extensive, nation-wide experience in modeling, designing and implementing all types of toll road financings, from large urban systems, to state-wide toll road authorities, to start-up toll roads. In addition to our substantial experience in providing financial advisory services to publicly owned and operated tollroads, we have proven expertise in evaluating public-private partnerships as well. We have the tools to successfully help you establish toll roads and build effective partnerships with private-sector businesses.
