Four busy QEW lanes in Mississauga and an on-ramp will close to traffic this Friday night/overnight (March 24) 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 between Erin Mills Pkwy. and Hurontario St. and two westbound lanes between Hurontario St. and Mississauga Rd. will be shut down to traffic to allow for an inspection of the bridge.

Additionally, the QEW eastbound on-ramp from northbound Mississauga Rd. will be completely closed from 10 p.m. on Friday until 5 a.m. Saturday morning.

Project leaders say the eastbound lanes will be closed from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. (first lane) and midnight to 5 a.m. (second lane) while westbound lanes will shut down from midnight to 7 a.m. (first lane) and midnight to 6 a.m. (second lane).

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.
