A busy on-ramp to the QEW in the heart of Mississauga will shut down to all traffic for seven weeks starting this Friday night (July 28) as crews continue work on the highway bridge over the Credit River.

Direct access to the eastbound QEW from Mississauga Rd. will be closed from July 28 at 10 p.m. until Sept. 16 at 5 a.m., according to officials with the QEW/Credit River Improvement Project overseeing the major bridge rehabilitation work.

During the closure, local access to the eastbound lanes of the major highway will be available via the South Sheridan Way on-ramp, officials say.

Meanwhile, two QEW lanes and several on- and off-ramps in Mississauga will be closed to traffic tonight (July 27) and into Friday morning

Project officials say two westbound lanes from Hurontario St. to Erin Mills Pkwy. will be closed from 9 p.m. Thursday night (first lane) until 6 a.m. Friday morning.

The second lane will shut down at 10 p.m. and remain closed until 6 a.m. Friday.

Ramps to close on Thursday night into Friday morning are as follows:

  • QEW westbound on-ramps at Hurontario St.–full closure 9 p.m. until 4 a.m.
  • QEW westbound off-ramp to Hurontario St.–full closure 9 p.m. until 4 a.m.
  • QEW westbound off-ramp to Mississauga Rd.–full closure 10 p.m. until 4 a.m.

Project leaders also remind motorists that four lanes of the QEW in Mississauga will be closed nightly at various times until Aug. 1.

In addition to the westbound lanes noted above, two eastbound lanes from Erin Mills Pkwy. to the Credit River Bridge will be closed at various times between 10 p.m. and 8 a.m. nightly and overnights until Aug. 1.

The lanes will be closed on both weeknights and on weekend nights, project leaders 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 two years ago.

More traffic disruptions are anticipated as work continues 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.
