2.11.02 - “We will build highways and key infrastructure, including […] the Bradford Bypass”
During their first term, the Ford government awarded a contract to build a bridge crossing for the Bradford Bypass, the first step toward the full Bradford Bypass. They also allocated funding for the Bradford Bypass in their 2022 Budget. In November 2022, the Ford government announced that construction was beginning on this bridge. However, as construction on the bypass has not yet begun - only the surrounding architecture - this promise remains not yet rated.
“The Ontario government is taking another step forward in its Bradford Bypass project – a new four-lane freeway that connects Highway 400 and Highway 404 in Simcoe County and York Region. Construction is beginning on a bridge that crosses over the future Bradford Bypass, in an announcement by the province Wednesday. […] “Proceeding with the overpass is a major step towards construction of the highway and demonstrates great cooperation between the province and Simcoe County,” said Rob Keffer, Bradford West Gwillimbury mayor.”
“The Ontario government has awarded a contract to design and build a bridge crossing for the Bradford Bypass. The new four-lane freeway, connecting Highway 400 and Highway 404 in Simcoe County and York Region, will relieve gridlock, create jobs and spur economic growth in the rapidly-growing Greater Golden Horseshoe region. […] Construction on the new bridge is expected to begin in late 2022 with an expected completion date by late fall 2024.”
