TORONTO—Three construction consortia have been shortlisted for a major bridge project on the border of Toronto and Mississauga.
Infrastructure Ontario and the province’s Ministry of Transportation said Aug. 12 they have selected Credit River Developers, EDCO and Keystone Transportation Partners to advance to the request for proposals stage of the QEW/ Credit River Improvement project. Coco Paving Inc., Dufferin Construction, EllisDon, Kiewit and Spanish contractor Ferrovial Agromán are all in the running for the contract.

The hunt for a builder to take on the design, build and finance project began this April with a request for qualifications.
The project itself consists of building a new bridge that will carry the Queen Elizabeth Way over the Credit River, as well as rehabilitating the existing six-lane span. Several other upgrades, such as changes to an nearby interchange and overpass, are also included.
According to Infrastructure Ontario, the new bridge will be located just north of the existing Credit River Bridge that extends about 250 metres.
The province expects to pick the team that will take on the project by summer 2020.
