Benefits of Competition

PennDOT, as a monopsony, is in a unique position to influence the level of competition in the paving market.  As has been documented in several studies, including most recently from work published by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, healthy competition in the paving market enhances quality, it stimulates investments in people and new equipment, and it lowers unit costs for both asphalt and concrete pavement.
