Ontario issues RFP for Garden City Skyway expansion

Ontario issues RFP for Garden City Skyway expansion

ST. CATHARINES, ONT. — The Ontario government has issued a Request for Proposals for the expansion of the Queen Elizabeth Way Garden City Skyway in the Niagara Region.

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, explained a release. 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 expansion of the Garden City Skyway was identified in the government’s Connecting the GGH: A Transportation Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe.

On average, 106,000 vehicles cross the Garden City Skyway bridge daily.

The Government of Ontario has allotted $3 billion in funding for the 2024–25 Ontario Highways Program, which features 650 expansion and rehabilitation projects.

“The Request for Proposals 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,” stated St. Catharines Mayor Mat Siscoe in a statement.
