Busy road beside QEW in Mississauga down to one lane for four weeks

QEW lanes in Mississauga closed nightly

A busy road next to the QEW in Mississauga will be reduced to one lane of traffic on weekdays throughout April as crews continue work on the highway bridge over the Credit River.

Officials with the QEW/Credit River Improvement Project overseeing the major bridge rehabilitation project say Premium Way, from Lynchmere Ave. to Stavebank Rd., will be reduced to one lane daily between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on weekdays only through April 28.

There will be no traffic disruption on weekends, officials note.

Project leaders say two-way traffic will be maintained at all times through flagging operations, and access to Stavebank Rd., Dickson Rd. and Lynchmere Ave. will be maintained as well.

Additionally, officials remind motorists that two eastbound lanes and two westbound lanes of the QEW between Erin Mills Pkwy. and Hurontario St. will be shut down to traffic at various times through April 16 to allow for “highway staging implementation.”

However, there will be no closures April 7 to 9, Easter Weekend, officials say.

Also, the QEW westbound off-ramp to Mississauga Rd. will be closed next Wednesday (April 5) from midnight until 5 a.m. Thursday morning to allow crews to complete line painting work.

It’s been a busy couple of months for QEW construction as the milder weather has, for the most part, set in.

Only three nights in all of March will not see lane or ramp closures in Mississauga as work ramps up as the weather gets warmer.

Temporary nighttime/overnight closures have been commonplace since last fall both on the QEW and nearby roads due to the massive project that began well over a year ago.

More traffic disruptions are anticipated as work proceeds in the coming months. Night and weekend work along the 2.6-km stretch of the QEW from Hurontario St. to Mississauga Rd., and beyond to Erin Mills Pkwy., is expected to impact traffic for the duration of the project.
