Drivers can expect nightly delays on QEW in Mississauga the next two weeks
Published August 31, 2023 at 10:52 am
Four lanes of the QEW in Mississauga will be closed nightly and overnight for the next two weeks as crews continue working on the highway bridge over the Credit River.
The closures are in effect until Sept. 15 and include two eastbound lanes from Erin Mills Parkway to the Credit River Bridge and two westbound lanes from Hurontario Street to Erin Mills Parkway.
The lane closures will impact traffic from as early as 10 p.m. some nights until as late as 8 a.m. the following mornings, according to officials with the QEW/Credit River Improvement Project overseeing the major bridge rehabilitation work.
There will be no lane closures on Labour Day weekend, from Friday through Monday, officials say.
Meanwhile, the QEW westbound off-ramp to Mississauga Road will be closed tonight (Aug. 31) from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. Friday morning.
Project leaders also remind motorists and residents that Premium Way, between Stavebank Road and Lynchmere Avenue, will be reduced to one lane between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on weekdays until Sept. 15.
Two-way traffic will be maintained at all times via flagging operations on that section of the road, which runs parallel to the QEW and to the immediate north of the busy highway.
Additionally, officials say, access to Stavebank Road, Dickson Road and Lynchmere Avenue along Premium Way will be maintained at all times.
There will be no lane restrictions on weekends or on Friday, Sept. 1 or Monday, Sept. 4, 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 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.
