Busy road near QEW in Mississauga will see one lane closed for next 10 nights

If it’s Monday, there must be more lane closures on the way in the coming days impacting traffic on and around the QEW in Mississauga.
Starting tomorrow night (April 4) and continuing until April 14, a small section of Mississauga Rd. will see one lane closed to traffic each night/overnight as crews continue work on the QEW bridge over the Credit River.
Officials with the QEW/Credit River Improvement Project overseeing the major bridge rehabilitation project say the latest closure, which will affect Mississauga Rd. between Mississauga Cres. and South Sheridan Way, will allow crews to work on the Mississauga Rd. QEW overpass.
That section of Mississauga Rd. will have one lane closed from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night/overnight between April 4 and 14.
Project leaders say two-way traffic will be maintained through flagging operations and access to Mississauga Cres. will be maintained at all times.
They also remind drivers that Mississauga Rd. between South Sheridan Way and the QEW westbound off-ramp will be closed tonight (April 3) from 9 p.m. until 6 a.m. Tuesday to allow for Mississauga Rd. overpass girder delivery and installation.
Additionally on Monday night (April 3) into Tuesday morning, two QEW eastbound lanes between Erin Mills Pkwy. and Hurontario St. will be closed to traffic.
The first lane will close from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. while the second lane will be shut down from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m.
Also, the eastbound on-ramps from both southbound and northbound Erin Mills Pkwy. will be closed as well, the former from 7 p.m. Monday to 5 a.m. Tuesday and the latter from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.
Officials also remind motorists that two eastbound QEW lanes and two westbound lanes 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.
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. is expected to impact traffic for the duration of the project.
