Several lanes of the QEW in Mississauga will be closed to traffic at various times starting this Sunday evening (Jan. 15) and continuing nightly through Jan. 23 as crews continue work on the rehabilitation of the highway bridge over the Credit River.

Officials with the QEW/Credit River Improvement Project overseeing the major project say the lane closures will be in effect most nights/overnights between Erin Mills Pkwy. and Hurontario St.

Additionally, the QEW eastbound on-ramp from northbound Mississauga Rd. will be fully closed from midnight to 5 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 22.

Officials say the on-ramp will not be closed on consecutive nights.

The first lane closures will see two eastbound lanes between Erin Mills Pkwy. and Hurontario St. shut down to traffic nightly between Jan. 15 and Jan. 20 from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. (first lane) and midnight to 5 a.m. (second lane).

Then, on Sunday, Jan. 22, two eastbound and two westbound lanes will be closed in the same area, according to project leaders.

Those closures will be in effect from 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. at night, depending on lane, to 5 a.m. the following morning.

If weather prevents crews from working on Jan. 22, the closures will be in effect on Monday, Jan. 23 instead.

Temporary nighttime/overnight closures have been commonplace the past several months both on the QEW and on Mississauga Rd. where it connects with the busy highway due to the massive project that began well over a year ago.

All work is being completed in order to facilitate winter staging activities, project officials say, adding more traffic disruptions are anticipated as work proceeds in the coming weeks and months.

Night and weekend work along the 2.6-km stretch of the QEW from Hurontario St. to Mississauga Rd. is expected to impact traffic for the duration of the project.
