AECOM wins Bradford Bypass contract for western section detail design

AECOM wins Bradford Bypass contract for western section detail design

BRADFORD, ONT. — AECOM Canada Ltd. has been awarded the contract for the detail design of the western section of the Bradford Bypass, the Ontario Government announced today (May 9).

The step marks a milestone in the province’s plan to build the new four-lane, 16-kilometre highway that it says will relieve gridlock, save commuters time and keep goods moving across the Greater Golden Horseshoe, indicates a release.

The western section of the bypass will run 6.5 kilometres from Highway 400 to Simcoe Road 4. Preliminary work for the Bradford Bypass is also currently underway with construction of a new bridge at Simcoe Road 4 and the widening of County Road 4 from two to four lanes.

During construction, the project is expected to support up to 2,200 jobs annually and contribute up to $286 million to the province’s GDP, the release adds.

“We have been working on the Bradford Bypass for several years and are pleased to be expanding our scope to include detail design,” said Richard Barrett, chief executive of AECOM’s Canada region, in a statement. “We look forward to our continued collaboration with the Ontario government to deliver this transformational project that will create lasting mobility improvements for residents and businesses for decades to come.”

Nadia Todorova, executive director of the Residential and Civil Construction Alliance of Ontario also welcomed the advancement to get the Bradford Bypass built.

“This piece of critical infrastructure is vital for growing communities in the region and the province’s economy,” said Todorova in a statement. “We are pleased to see the next stage of this project get underway so construction of necessary and critical infrastructure projects can proceed quickly and efficiently.”
