Privatized Toll Roads Could Net $10 Billion
Acting Governor Richard J. Codey is considering selling or leasing the New Jersey Turnpike and the state's other two main toll roads to help close a multibillion-dollar budget gap.
"Experts on such deals say the state could make more than $10 billion on the turnpike alone by selling the toll-collection rights to a private operator.
...Companies have assumed operation and maintenance of toll roads in Canada, Australia and Europe. While others have considered the idea, Chicago's government last year became the first in the United States to complete such a deal, getting $1.83 billion to lease the Chicago Skyway to a private group for 99 years."
