The Government of Canada officially sent out a request for proposals (RFP) for the construction of a new bridge for the St. Lawrence River in Quebec.

The bridge will replace the Champlain Bridge in Montreal, Que., which is the busiest crossing in Canada for cars, trucks and buses.

Approximately $20 billion in annual international trade currently crosses the Champlain Bridge in Quebec.

The announcement was made on March 30 by Denis Lebel, Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities, and Minister of the Economic Development Agency of Canada for the Regions of Quebec.

The RFP is posted at the Government Electronic Tendering Service MERX.

Public Works and Government Services Canada will manage the contracting process.

The contract is expected to be awarded in early June 2012.
