Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) have released a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) to prequalify project teams to deliver the Highway 3 Expansion project in the County of Essex, Ontario as a Public Private Partnership (P3) project.

The Highway 3 Expansion project extends approximately 15.6 kilometres, widening the road from two to four lanes from the Town of Essex to the Town of Leamington (1.2 km east of Essex Road 23 to 1.1 km east of Essex Road 34).

Interested companies must register with to download the RFQ.

IO and MTO will evaluate RFQ submissions to prequalify project teams with the relevant design, construction, and financing experience. Teams that qualify will be invited to respond to a Request for Proposals (RFP) which is expected to be issued this fall 2021.

The project is being delivered through IO’s design, build and finance (DBF) Public-Private Partnership (P3) model, which transfers appropriate risks associated with design, construction and financing of the project to the private sector.
