Origin

(February 20, 2014) Report from the Executive Director, Engineering and Construction Services, the General Manager, Transportation Services, and the Director, Purchasing and Materials Management

Summary

The report presents a summary of the proposed Strategic Plan for the rehabilitation of the F.G. Gardiner Expressway, extending from Highway 427 to the eastern limit at Logan Avenue, including the "at-grade" and "elevated" sections is presented in this report.  The report includes an assessment of the current condition of the Expressway, a prioritization of rehabilitation works, and presents a comparison between the conventional and accelerated approaches for the rehabilitation in terms of project schedule, capital costs and user impact costs associated with the construction of the rehabilitation works.

 

The approval of an innovative, accelerated approach for the rehabilitation of the Expressway is being recommended.  The approach involves scheduling rehabilitation work for the "at-grade" section with the replacement of deck for the "elevated" section, which has reached the end of its service life, using prefabricated deck/girder sections.  While this approach represents an initial increase of an estimated $400 million in Transportation Services' 2014 to 2023 Capital Budget and Plan, the longer term cost differential over the 25 year implementation period using the conventional approach is estimated to be $115 million.  This increase in capital costs is more than offset by the reduction in traffic and user impacts by an estimated eight years and user impact cost of $3 billion.

 

This report also advises on the results of Tender Call No. 314-2013 issued for the replacement of the West Deck of the elevated section of the Expressway from Exhibition Place to Grand Magazine Street (west of Bathurst Street).
