By Andrew Snook
March 12, 2018 – The Ontario Ministry of Transportation has issued a request for proposals to design and build 18 kilometres of Highway 401 from Credit River in Mississauga to Regional Road 25 in Milton.
The Highway 401 Expansion project will widen an 18-kilometre stretch of Highway 401 relieving a congested section of the highway connecting both cities.
The project is being delivered under Infrastructure Ontario’s (IO) Alternative Financing and Procurement model.
Prequalified teams are able to submit their proposal to design, build and finance the Highway 401 Expansion project, with the successful bidder expected to be announced in 2019.
The prequalified groups announced by IO include:
- Blackbird Infrastructure Group, including Dufferin Construction Company, Ferrovial Agroman Canada Inc., Klohn Crippen Berger Ltd. and TD Securities;
- LINK401, including Dragados Canada Inc., Brennan Infrastructures Inc., Bot Infrastructure Ltd., WSP Canada Group Limited, ACS Infrastructure Canada Inc. and Stonebridge Financial Corporation; and
- West Corridor Constructors, including Aecon Infrastructure Management Inc., Amico Design Build Inc., Parsons Inc. and National Bank Financial Inc.
The announcement for the RFPs was made by Kathryn McGarry, Minister of Transportation and Indira Naidoo-Harris, MPP for Halton.
“This stretch of highway is one of the busiest in the province and is vital to the movement of people and goods in Ontario and the United States,” stated McGarry. “Our government is committed to making the necessary infrastructure investments that sustain the economic growth in the GTA. Adding new lanes will keep traffic moving so businesses can get their products to market and people can get where they need to be sooner.”
