  • Compensation for competing infrastructures along a 10 mile corridor.
  • Compensation in the event of an increase in the speed limit on the I-35.

Chicago Skyway

  • Provides an alternative to a highly congested corridor connecting Chicago with a major residential and leisure area.
  • Rate system that allows rate increases above the rate of inflation: rate increases under the contract in alternate years to 2017. Starting in 2018, an annual increase of 2%, the consumer price index or nominal per capita GDP, whichever is highest.

Indiana Toll Road

  • Two different sections:
  • Western Section, 37 km long with open toll system which connects with the Chicago Skyway. It provides an alternative to a highly congested corridor.
  • Eastern section, 217 km of ticket system toll road to the Ohio state line. It is part of the main route linking Chicago and the Mid-West with New York and carries heavy freight traffic.
  • Very attractive toll plan with increases above inflation:
  • In 2010, an increase amounting to 2%, the CPI or nominal per capita GDP over the previous four years, whichever is highest.
  • Starting in 2011, an annual review, amounting to 2%, the CPI or nominal per capita GDP, whichever is highest.

  • The NTE Mobility Partners consortium, led by Cintra, began to build the road at the end of 2010 and it is expected to enter into service in 2015. The concession period is 52 years.
  • The NTE will include an electronic, barrier-free toll system to assure a high level of service and free-flowing traffic. Rates are dynamic and may be changed every 5 minutes to ensure a minimum speed of 50 miles per hour.

LBJ highway
