RFP issued for QEW Garden City Skyway Bridge twinning project

Ontario Construction News staff writer

Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) have released a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the QEW Garden City Skyway – Bridge Twinning project in the Regional Municipality of Niagara. The QEW Garden City Skyway – Bridge Twinning project includes constructing a new 2.2-kilometre twin bridge to the north of the existing bridge, connecting St. Catharines and Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Five teams have been pre-qualified and invited to bid on the project, which is being delivered using a Progressive Design-Build – Target Price delivery model. Teams were selected based on criteria identified in the Request for Qualifications process that began in December 2022.

The Skyway expansion includes construction of a new four-lane, 2.2-kilometre bridge across the Welland Canal, as well as the rehabilitation and full deck replacement of the current bridge. Once complete, each bridge will have four lanes with the new bridge carrying Toronto-bound traffic and the upgraded existing bridge carrying Niagara-bound traffic.

“The Request for Proposals (RFP) is an important step on the path to expanding the Garden City Skyway. With the projected increases in population and jobs throughout the Greater Golden Horseshoe in the coming years, this expansion will allow people and goods to travel more freely through Niagara,” said St. Catharines Mayor Mat Siscoe. “The City of St. Catharines is looking forward to the completion of this project and the economic growth that will accompany it.”
