Infrastructure Ontario launches RFQ for Highway 427

Infrastructure Ontario (Canada) has launched a request for qualification (RFQ) for the Highway 427 expansion PPP project.

The preferred bidder will be responsible for the design, build, operation and maintenance of the road.

The Highway 427 Expansion project is approximately 10.6 kilometres in length and is located within the western part of the City of Vaughan in the Region of York and consists of:

  • The extension of Highway 427 by 6.6 kilometres from Highway 7 northerly to Major Mackenzie Drive.
  • The widening of the existing Highway 427 to 8 lanes extending 4 kilometers along Highway 427 from approximately 1.5 km south of Albion Road northerly to Highway 7.

A pre-bid meeting will be held on 20 July. Interested parties must submit their qualification documents on or before 17 August 2015.

Highway 427 connects the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW) and Gardiner Expressway with York Regional Road 7 (Highway 7) via Highway 401. It is Ontario's second busiest freeway by volume and third busiest in North America with an average of 300,000 vehicles that use it between the QEW and Highway 401 per day. A portion of the route is divided into a collector-express system with twelve to fourteen continuous lanes.
