QEW Mississauga lane and area road closures due to highway bridge work
Lane closures on and around the QEW in Mississauga are commonplace these days as work continues on the bridge over the Credit River.

Mississauga Rd. near the QEW will be completely shut down to traffic this weekend (Dec. 16-19) as work crews complete demolition of the highway overpass.

The task is part of the ongoing rehabilitation of the QEW bridge over the Credit River, a massive project that began well over a year ago. 

Officials with the QEW/Credit River Improvement Project overseeing the major undertaking say Mississauga Rd., from the QEW westbound off-ramp to South Sheridan Way, will be fully closed from 10 p.m. tomorrow night (Dec. 16) until 5 a.m. Monday morning.

The closure will allow workers to carry out the “completion of the demolition of the existing QEW overpass at Mississauga Rd.,” project officials say.

During the work, access to Mississauga Cres. will be maintained with paid-duty police officers directing traffic, officials say.

Also, the QEW westbound ramp to Mississauga Rd. will be closed to traffic from midnight on Sunday (Dec. 18) until 5 a.m. Monday morning.

That closure is to allow crews to refresh pavement markings on the highway.

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.

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.
