Ontario Widening Highway 401 in Mississauga and Milton

Province Creating Jobs and Keeping People and Goods Moving Through the GTA

Ontario is widening 18km of Highway 401 in Mississauga and Milton, to improve traffic flow and keep people and goods moving. The project will widen 18 kilometres of highway, from the Credit River in Mississauga to Regional Road 25 in Milton. Widening the highway will relieve congestion, allow for more efficient transportation and flow of goods, and help accommodate continued population and employment growth in the region.

Building new highways to get traffic moving is part of Ontario's plan to create fairness and opportunity during this period of rapid economic change. The plan includes a higher minimum wage and better working conditions, free tuition for hundreds of thousands of students, easier access to affordable child care, and free prescription drugs for everyone under 25 through the biggest expansion of medicare in a generation.

• The project is being delivered under Infrastructure Ontario's Alternative Financing and Procurement model, which transfers risks associated with design, construction and financing of the project to the private sector.

• 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 are: - 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 - West Corridor Constructors, including Aecon Infrastructure Management Inc., Amico Design Build Inc., Parsons Inc. and National Bank Financial Inc.

• The average daily traffic for Highway 401 in the Peel and Halton region is approximately 118,000 to 175,000 vehicles per day.

• In 2017/18, Ontario is committing more than $2.5 billion to repair and expand provincial highways and bridges across the province.
