Hawkins public finance transportation attorneys have participated in financings for some of the nation’s most important and well-travelled bridges and tunnels. Our experience, expertise and our responsiveness assures that clients receive the best and most appropriate advice for a successful financing. Serving as bond counsel or underwriters’ counsel, we have participated in more than 75 bridge and tunnel financings with a principal amount exceeding $ 24 billion.

As bond counsel, Hawkins has assisted clients in preparing all of the financing documentation required for toll bridge system revenue bonds and debt refundings.  We are fully familiar with the many complexities associated with interstate and international bridge financings. Our work has included service as bond counsel or underwriters’ counsel on the International Peace Bridge linking Buffalo to Ontario, Canada; New York’s new Tappan Zee Bridge; the proposed KABATA Bridge crossing in Alaska; and the Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority’s nine bridge and tunnel system.
