Three teams have been shortlisted to submit proposals to design, build and finance the Highway 3 expansion project in the County of Essex, Ontario.

Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) selected the teams based on criteria identified in a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) process that began in June 2021.

The Highway 3 expansion project extends 15.6 kilometres, widening the highway from two to four lanes from the Town of Essex to the Town of Leamington (1.2 kilometres east of Essex Road 23 to 1.1 kilometres east of Essex Road 34).

Selection criteria included the relevant design, construction and financing experience to deliver the project.
