Ontario Invests in Highway Infrastructure in Mississauga

Ontario Protects and Creates Jobs with Repairs to the QEW/Credit River Bridge
April 26, 2019

Ontario's government is putting people first by investing in the rehabilitation of the bridge on the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW) over the Credit River in Mississauga.

Improving highways and bridges will keep Ontario highways reliable for workers, families and businesses across the province. A strong transportation network will attract investment, job creation and trade that will benefit all Ontarians.

The government is ensuring value for money by delivering the project through Infrastructure Ontario'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.

"Repairing bridges is part of our plan to keep Ontario moving," said Kinga Surma, Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Transportation. "Our government is respecting taxpayers and protecting the things that matter most as we invest in Ontario's highways."

"Thousands of commuters and commercial vehicles cross the Credit River Bridge every day," said Rudy Cuzzetto, MPP for Mississauga-Lakeshore. "Keeping our bridges in good repair not only keeps drivers safe, but also improves traffic flow and supports economic growth."
