A Request for Proposals to three prequalified teams to design, build and finance the next stage of the Highway 3 Expansion project has been issued by the Ontario Government.

This includes widening the highway from two to four lanes for 15.6 kilometres between the Town of Essex and the Town of Leamington, as part of the province’s plan to build Ontario.

“Road safety has been – and always will be – a priority for our government. By widening Highway 3, we are delivering on our promise to make travel easier and safer for the thousands of people who depend on this roadway each day,” said Caroline Mulroney, Minister of Transportation. “Our government has a clear vision to build Ontario. This project will support good jobs during construction, and once complete, ensure that our truck drivers and carriers can get their goods to market more quickly.”

The prequalified teams shortlisted for the project were announced in October based on criteria identified in a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) process that began in June 2021. Each team is now being invited to begin preparing proposals that detail how they will design, build and finance the project, with a successful bidder expected to be announced in fall 2022.
