Four lanes of the QEW in Mississauga will be closed to traffic at various times the next several nights/overnights as work crews repair potholes on the highway bridge over the Credit River.
Officials with the QEW/Credit River Improvement Project overseeing the major bridge rehabilitation project say the lane closures will take place tonight (Jan. 11) through Friday night and into Saturday morning.
Additionally, the QEW eastbound on-ramp from northbound Mississauga Rd. will be fully closed from midnight to 5 a.m. on Thursday and Saturday overnights.
Project leaders say two eastbound lanes and two westbound lanes between Erin Mills Pkwy. and Hurontario St. will be closed at various times:
- QEW eastbound lanes–first lane closed 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Wednesday and Thursday nights and from midnight to 5 a.m. on Friday night. Second lane is closed from midnight to 5 a.m. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights
- QEW westbound lanes–first lane closed 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. Wednesday and Thursday nights and second lane shut down from midnight to 5 a.m. the same nights
Officials note that the work depends on the weather and can be rescheduled at any time.
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 due to the massive project that began well over a year ago.
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.
