  • Abstract:
    This report presents the results of research on the institutional and non-technical issues related to shared resource projects. Shared resource projects are a particular form of public-private partnering that may help public agencies underwrite their telecommunications infrastructure for Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). The partnership involves sharing the public resource of roadway right-of-way and the private resource of telecommunications expertise and capacity to the advantage of both parties. Most commonly, private telecommunications providers are granted access to roadway rights-of-way for their own telecommunications infrastructure (principally fiber optics conduits and cable) in exchange for providing telecommunications infrastructure to the public sector. In some cases, the arrangement provides private telecommunications firms with access to roadway right-of-way in exchange for cash compensation to the public sector, which can then be directed to public sector transportation, ITS, or other needs. This report identifies and explores 20 issues associated with implementation of shared resource projects and describes various options for dealing with these issues. The report also presents five case studies to illustrate the types of arrangements that have been implemented to date. (90 p.)
