Expect QEW lane closures nightly for last two weeks of July in Mississauga
Published July 7, 2023 at 10:31 am
Four lanes of the QEW in Mississauga will be closed nightly the last two weeks of July 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 work say two westbound lanes from Hurontario St. to Erin Mills Pkwy. and 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 from July 14 until Aug. 1.
The lanes will be closed on both weeknights and on weekend nights, project leaders say.
Additionally, a busy road near the QEW will be down to a single lane during daytime hours on three consecutive weekends, starting tomorrow (July 8).
Premium Way, from Dickson Rd. to Lynchmere Ave., will be reduced to one lane of traffic on July 8 and 9, July 15 and 16 and July 22 and 23 from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
Officials say two-way traffic will always be maintained through flagging operations and access to Dickson Rd. and Lynchmere Ave. will be maintained at all times as well.
Project leaders also remind motorists that two eastbound lanes of the QEW between Erin Mills Pkwy. and Hurontario St. and the westbound off-ramp to Mississauga Rd. will be shut down to traffic starting tonight (July 7) at midnight.
The off-ramp will reopen at 5 a.m. on Saturday morning while the two lanes will reopen at 6 a.m. and 7 a.m.
From next Monday (July 10) through July 13, the following nightly closures/reductions will be in effect:
- single lane shut down on Mississauga Rd., between Kedleston Way and the QEW-Mississauga Rd. interchange, from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. (two-way traffic will be maintained at all times under flagging conditions and access to and from Mississauga Cres. will be maintained at all times)
- QEW westbound off-ramp to Mississauga Rd., from midnight to 5 a.m. (on July 10 and 12 only)
- single lane shut down on South Sheridan Way, between Mississauga Rd. and QEW-South Sheridan Way interchange from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. (two-way traffic will be maintained at all times under flagging conditions)
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 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.
