Project Background

It was announced in early April that Grey Highlands had been selected for funding through the Ministry of Transportation's 2023-24 Connecting Link Program to receive up to $3,000,000 of the overall project costs for reconstructing Toronto Road and Sydenham Street in Flesherton. This project had been approved as part of the 2023 budget, pending funding approval.


R.J. Burnside and Associates prepared the tender package and it was issued on Biddingo in accordance with the Procurement By-law on April 26, 2023. Five bid submissions were received. The three lowest bids were reviewed for completeness and mathematical accuracy and were compliant, except for a minor mathematical error with one of the bidders.


Staff supports the recommendation of RJ Burnside that the Municipality award the contract for the Highway 10 Connecting Link at Flesherton to Harold Sutherland Construction at their tendered price of $3,187,946 (HST excluded). A requirement of the tender was for the contractor to provide a Public Relations Officer.

Upon award of the contract and start-up meeting, schedules for public consultation and communications to residents and businesses will be laid out.

A Public Information Session was held Wednesday, July 12th at the Kinplex in Flesherton where staff and contractors were on hand to answer questions and project boards were displayed throughout the room with the project details.


The 2023 approved budget for the Flesherton Connecting Link project is $3,491,873. The MTO funding will provide 90% up to a maximum of $3,000,000 of funding towards the project. The Municipality's portion is to be funded through debenture. The lowest bid provided by Harold Sutherland Construction is $3,187,946 (excluding HST).


The total cost including the non-rebatable portion of HST is $3,244,053.85. There are a number of provisional items included in the tender which will impact the final cost of the work.


The Municipality's budget for the construction work including contingencies is $3,137,412.75. In addition, the estimate of $282,367.15 from RJ Burnside has been allocated in the budget for detailed design engineering and contract administration on the project.
