  • The Scourge of Orphaned and Abandoned Wells: Leveraging
           Public-Private-Citizen Collaboration to Solve a Big Problem

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Daniel J. Mallinson, Aqsa Ali, Jingyu Guo, Pedro Robles
      Abstract: Public Works Management & Policy, Ahead of Print.
      Orphaned and abandoned wells are emblematic of the challenges of abandoned infrastructure. With over 2.5 million idle wells in the United States, this is a large problem that requires engagement across the public, private, non-profit, and civic sectors. This article conducts a focused case study on orphaned and abandoned well reclamation in Pennsylvania. Elite interviews, government document review, and scholarly literature reveal the barriers to effective collaboration across the sectors, but also substantial potential. Using the public-private-citizen partnership (PC2) and collaborative governance regime (CGR) frameworks, the article proposes a PC2 CGR that could leverage the influx of federal well plugging funds for greater effectiveness in solving this big problem. The case also holds lessons for other states and other sources of abandoned infrastructure.

  • Advantages and Disadvantages of Closing Rail Crossings: A Case Study From
           Louisiana

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Guang Tian
      Abstract: Public Works Management & Policy, Ahead of Print.
      Road-railroad crossings are where different modes of transportation meet, which brings safety concerns and the potential for hampering transportation efficiency and creating other issues. By surveying and interviewing professionals in Louisiana, this study aims to investigate incentive programs and their effectiveness in reducing the number of at-grade crossings for policy implementation. The results show that most agencies in Louisiana were concerned about safety at railroad crossings with one third supporting closing crossings to alleviate their concerns. In addition, stakeholders were also concerned about the condition and maintenance of crossings, traffic management, and access for active transportation. Among five identified programs, road improvement was ranked as the most effective program, and the combination of multiple programs may be more effective than any individual program. This study recommends that context-sensitive, accessible, and transparent policies, public education, and stakeholder engagement may help to improve safety and efficiency at road-railroad crossings overall.

  • A Method for Verifying the Applicability of Tramway Projects

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Martha Chatziparaskeva, Christos Pyrgidis, Konstantinos Kepaptsoglou
      Abstract: Public Works Management & Policy, Ahead of Print.
      Feasibility studies of transportation projects often require significant technical input, which should normally be the outcome of sub-sequent studies. An early assessment and screening of technically suitable project alternatives in the form of applicability verification could yield significant cost and time savings for planners, decision makers and stakeholders. The objective of this paper is to develop a comprehensive approach for the technical applicability verification of tramway systems. The proposed method considers different applicability aspects in a systematic manner and allows for quickly assessing whether a project may be implemented, in the context of a preparatory process. A case study of the applicability verification method for the case of a planned tram line in Thessaloniki, Greece, demonstrates the potential of the proposed method.

  • Fracking and Traffic Crashes in Eagle Ford Shale of Texas

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Sarmistha R. Majumdar, Bumseok Chun
      Abstract: Public Works Management & Policy, Ahead of Print.
      Fracking is used in the extraction of crude oil and natural gas from deep seated sedimentary rocks. The ubiquitous use of heavy trucks in fracking leads to traffic congestion and damages to the existing infrastructure in energy producing corridors. This makes driving hazardous for drivers of both commodity and passenger carriers, leading to traffic crashes near fracking sites. In this exploratory study, the case of Eagle Ford Shale of Texas has been analyzed to determine the impacts if any, of the variables of energy production, truck vehicle miles traveled, and other socio-economic factors on traffic crashes. Using both descriptive and statistical analyses of data, it has been found that some of the aforementioned variables have an impact on traffic crashes in the energy producing corridor. Based on the study’s findings, appropriate recommendations to reduce traffic crashes in this energy corridor have been made.

  • Public-Private Partnerships and Value for Money

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Robson de Faria Silva, Alceu Souza, Fabíola Kaczam, Luciano Luiz Dalazen, Wesley Vieira da Silva, Claudimar Pereira da Veiga
      Abstract: Public Works Management & Policy, Ahead of Print.
      The implementation of infrastructure projects is one element that drives economic development. When considering the high costs and complexity of these projects, the importance of analysis is highlighted a little more than traditional value for money when such projects are carried out in a public-private partnership. This article examines the state of the art of research on evaluating public-private partnership performance considering evidence of value for money. For this purpose, a systematic literature review was conducted based on the scientific production available in the Scopus and Web of Science databases. The main contributions of this study consist of presenting (1) a set of papers on performance evaluation that considers VfM as a complement to its evaluation systems, comparatively or inclusively in its analyses; (2) a methodological framework; and (3) guidelines for future research. This study provides insights for developing empirical studies in a wide range of contexts or sectors.

  • Prevailing Wage Repeal, Highway Construction Costs, and Bid Competition in
           Kentucky: A Difference-in-Differences and Fixed Effects Analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Kevin C. Duncan, Jill L. Gigstad, Frank P. Manzo
      Abstract: Public Works Management & Policy, Ahead of Print.
      Data for over 2,000 highway pavement projects, constructed between 2014 and 2020, are used to examine the effect of Kentucky’s prevailing wage repeal in 2017 on relative bid costs and bid competition for state and federally funded work. Other than Davis-Bacon and Disadvantaged Business Enterprise policies for federal projects, and prevailing wage requirements on state-funded work prior to 2017, all highway construction in Kentucky is built to the same standard. A difference-in-differences and fixed effects analysis fails to find statistically significant differences in bid costs and competition between federal and state projects before and after repeal. Competition on pavement projects in Kentucky is very low compared to other states. Consequently, the impact of increased competition on bid costs is very high. Policies increasing competition in Kentucky would be more effective in reducing costs than prevailing wage repeal.

  • Development of a New Procedure for Assessing Road Signs Maintenance
           Priorities for the Tuscan Road Network

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Monica Meocci, Valentina Branzi, Andrea Paliotto, Lorenzo Domenichini, Francesca La Torre
      Abstract: Public Works Management & Policy, Ahead of Print.
      Road network safety management is a challenging process for Road Administrations (RAs) in Italy. It requires planning their activities, identifying operational actions, and implementing maintenance activities. For an effective road management system, all these activities should be based on a replicable monitoring procedure which relies on technical criteria to identify critical sites requiring attention. To develop and implement a reliable and effective maintenance strategy, Road Administrations need inexpensive and user-friendly procedures that can be applied to the entire road network. Road signs and road markings plays an important role in providing visual guidance for road users, which in turn influences road safety. This paper proposes and discusses a standardized and systematic monitoring procedure for the condition assessment of road signs and markings. The procedure will be applied to identify damaged, old, or unreadable signs and markings and a section of a two-way two-lane rural road has been used to test and calibrate the proposed procedure.

  • Groundwater Option in Raw Water Source Selection and Related Policy
           Changes in Finland

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Petri S. Juuti, Riikka P. Juuti, Tapio S. Katko, Annukka M. Lipponen, Antero O. Luonsi
      Abstract: Public Works Management & Policy, Ahead of Print.
      Since the late 1800s, the source selection – surface water or groundwater – for urban water supply has faced several policy changes in Finland. First, groundwater was favored. In 1920, driven by cost and reliability issues, one major city turned to surface water which was a sourcing determination for the country. After WWII, groundwater gradually gained preference motivated by reliability, including managed aquifer recharge since 1970. Instead of identified policy decisions, this shift was based on accumulated strategy. Since the 1980s security issues have favored groundwater while environmental concerns manifest themselves controversially. As a sub-study, treated lake water and groundwater were tasted by 167 persons of whom 86% preferred the latter. An additional expert survey (n=14) showed several benefits for groundwater. Combining these findings, groundwater has several advantages over surface water for Finnish urban water. Yet, for the futures, we need to keep both water sources in as good condition as possible.

      Authors: Carter B. Casady, Michael J. Garvin
      Abstract: Public Works Management & Policy, Ahead of Print.
      In North America, public-private partnerships (P3s) are increasingly using pre-development agreements to enhance collaboration between the public and private sectors. Known colloquially as “progressive P3s”, these agreements allow the private sector to help scope and shape the structure of projects at the front end. However, concerns about their efficacy persist. Our Commentary contextualizes this ongoing debate by outlining the potential benefits and pitfalls of this new approach to P3s. We conclude that both practitioners and academics have a crucial role to play in our experience with and understanding of the progressive P3 experiment.

  • Agenda Setting for the 20% Mandatory Subcontracting Policy in Zambia’s
           Construction Sector: The Multiple-Streams Framework

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Sydney Tembo, Seunghoo Lim
      Abstract: Public Works Management & Policy, Ahead of Print.
      Agenda setting is critical to public policy due to impacts on subsequent policy processes. On July 25, 2012, the Zambian Government issued a policy pronouncement directing the Road Development Agency to apply a 20% mandatory subcontracting to all road contracts valued above ZMW30 million. The policy directive aimed to improve the capacity of local contractors, create jobs and address concerns of declining local participation due to the dominance of foreign contractors. This pronouncement triggered the implementation of a policy initiative based on road subsector guidelines, but several studies have reported implementation challenges. Applying the multiple-streams framework, this study identifies both the failure of agenda setting to lead to policy formulation and the fragmentation of the construction sector policy community as initial sources of implementation challenges. The study recommends revisiting agenda setting and conducting research on defragmenting the construction policy community.

  • Do Public-Private Partnerships Still Have a Future'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Veronica Vecchi, Angelo Tanese, Stephen Osborne
      Abstract: Public Works Management & Policy, Ahead of Print.
      Public Private Partnerships (PPP) are under discussion because of the mixed results achieved and the deteriorated trust between public and private actors. However, abandoning PPP could represent a severe mistake in public policy. Based on the recent Italian experience, the authors argue that a new approach to PPP, based on the ESG/SDGs and Impact Investing agenda, could represent an opportunity, both for the public and the private sectors, to contribute to solving wicked problems while generating societal value. This Commentary paves the way for a reflection on this renewed approach to PPP and the need for a new set of skills in the public and private sectors to support the transition.

      Gas taxes represent one of the most important revenue sources for state transportation funding. This study draws upon the theory of policy innovation and diffusion and examines the drivers of legislative decisions to directly increase state gas tax rates among 50 states from 2010 to 2018. Using a discrete event history analysis, this study finds that states raise gas tax rates in response to the growing funding needs of maintaining and improving the quality and performance of state highway infrastructure. Additionally, these findings suggest that state internal characteristics— poverty rate, personal income, rising gas prices, as well as the external influences of neighboring states affect the adoption of a gas tax rate hike.

      Abstract: Public Works Management & Policy, Ahead of Print.
      In 2015, the United Nations member states unanimously adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals as a part the Agenda for Sustainable Development, with a target completion date of 2030. Of these, (9) Industry Innovation and Infrastructure, (12) Responsible Production and Consumption, and (13) Climate Change have direct links to transportation and to aviation. One goal, (5) Gender Equality has especially powerful connections to and impacts on air transport. This paper will discuss the relationship between sustainability, gender equity, and air transport and make recommendations for a future of transport that is economically, socially, financially, and environmentally more sustainable.

  • Transit Stigma: Transit Administrators’ Views of the Role of Policy
           Elites in Perpetuating Stigma

      Abstract: Public Works Management & Policy, Ahead of Print.
      Public transportation use is heavily stigmatized in the United States. As a result, those who depend on public transportation services for mobility are marginalized and subject to unjust social assumptions about their character, work ethic, and overall place in society. Prior research documents that public transit administrators are actively working to combat transit stigma in their service area; however, questions remain regarding how public transit administrators view the role of policy elites (elected or appointed political figures) in perpetuating transit stigma. Through a series of in-depth interviews with 20 transit administrators from across the United States, this research finds that policy elites maintain transit stigma through both formal and informal roles by devaluing the role of transit in society, focusing on short-term political goals, and restricting funding opportunities for public transportation agencies.

      Abstract: Public Works Management & Policy, Ahead of Print.
      Capital management capacity is an important precursor to government administration of public infrastructure. This research develops a framework to assess capital management capacity by extending an existing framework and demonstrating how the framework can be used in the U.S. to evaluate state and local governments’ capital management practices. The framework is evaluated using the State of Vermont Agency of Transportation and Palm Beach County Department of Engineering and Public Works.

      Abstract: Public Works Management & Policy, Ahead of Print.
      This study examines public–private partnerships (PPPs) in terms of providing public value and analyzes the structuring of PPP contractual agreements to achieve public values of accountability, transparency, responsibility, responsiveness, and quality. We focus on transportation PPP projects utilizing case studies of the I-495 and I-95 PPP projects in northern Virginia. Review of contractual documents governing the PPPs and analysis of supplemental data related to PPP outcomes is conducted. We examine the creation and maintenance of public value through the process and performance elements of the contractual agreement. Study findings provide insight into how the roles, relationships, and interactions of the public and private partners, reflected in process and performance elements, are incorporated into agreements to ensure public value.
