The request for proposals stage has closed for teams to submit their bids to design build and finance the Highway 401 Expansion project.

Following a fair, open and transparent request for qualifications process, three teams - Blackbird Infrastructure Group, LINK401 and West Corridor Constructors - were prequalified and invited to respond to a request for proposals in March 2018. All three teams have submitted their proposals by today's deadline.

Over the next several months, submissions will be evaluated and the outcome is expected to be announced in 2019. A fairness monitor is overseeing the entire procurement process.
