A busy QEW off-ramp in the heart of Mississauga will be closed to traffic starting Thursday night (Sept. 15) and continuing into the following morning as crews continue work on rehabilitation of the highway bridge over the Credit River.

Officials with the QEW/Credit River Improvement Project, who are overseeing the massive undertaking, say the westbound off-ramp to Mississauga Rd. will be closed during that time period.

Specifically, the off-ramp’s first lane will be closed from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. with a full off-ramp closure slated for midnight to 5 a.m.

Project officials say they anticipate minor traffic disruptions due to the temporary closure, the latest in a series of ongoing closures as construction ramps up.

Meanwhile, officials have also planned seven consecutive nights of lane/ramp closures that started Sept. 11 in an effort to get as much work in before winter arrives. 

The following lane closures are in effect through Sept. 17:

  • QEW eastbound from Erin Mills Pkwy. to the Credit River bridge–first lane from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. nightly, second lane from midnight to 5 a.m.
  • QEW westbound from Hurontario St. to Erin Mills Pkwy.–first lane from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. nightly, second lane from midnight to 5 a.m.

Notices of temporary lane and ramp closures on the QEW in Mississauga have been coming fast and furious in the past month.

QEW/Credit River Improvement Project officials have been putting out closure notices almost every other day. 

As work continues on the Credit River bridge project, drivers and area residents can expect ongoing traffic disruptions to impact part of the QEW and other areas in the vicinity of Mississauga Rd. and the highway 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 construction.
