Four QEW lanes in Mississauga will shut down nightly for next three weeks

Four busy QEW lanes in Mississauga will close to traffic each night/overnight for the next three weeks with the exception of Easter weekend 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 project say two eastbound lanes and two westbound lanes between Erin Mills Pkwy. and Hurontario St. will be shut down to traffic at various times through April 16 to allow for “highway staging implementation.”
However, there will be no closures April 7 to 9, officials say.
QEW westbound lane closures will be as follows:
- Mondays to Thursdays–first lane closed from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m., second lane from midnight to 5 a.m.
- Fridays–first lane closed from midnight to 6 a.m., second lane from midnight to 5 a.m.
- Saturdays–first lane closed from midnight to 7 a.m., second lane from midnight to 6 a.m.
QEW eastbound lane closures will be as follows:
- Mondays to Thursdays–first lane closed from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., second lane from midnight to 5 a.m.
- Fridays–first lane closed from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m., second lane from midnight to 5 a.m.
It’s been a busy couple of months for QEW construction as the milder weather has, for the most part, set in.
Only three nights in all of March will not see lane or ramp closures in Mississauga as work ramps up as the weather gets warmer.
Temporary nighttime/overnight closures have been commonplace since last fall both on the QEW and nearby roads due to the massive project that began well over a year 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.
