Highway closures: Lanes and ramp to shut down nightly on QEW in Mississauga
Published November 2, 2023 at 12:01 pm
A busy QEW off-ramp in Mississauga will shut down to traffic this weekend and part of the following weekend as work continues on the highway bridge over the Credit River.
Officials with the QEW/Credit River Improvement Project overseeing the major bridge rehabilitation work say the QEW eastbound off-ramp to South Sheridan Way will be fully closed starting late Friday night (midnight) until 5 a.m. on Saturday morning.
It will be closed to traffic again during the same periods on Saturday and Sunday nights/overnights this weekend, project leaders say.
The same ramp will close yet again from 11 p.m. next Thursday night (Nov. 9) until 5 a.m. the following morning.
During that same period on Nov. 9-10, but from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m., two eastbound lanes of the QEW between Erin Mills Parkway and Hurontario Street will shut down to motorists, officials note.
Motorists are also reminded that a pair of eastbound lanes from Erin Mills Parkway to the Credit River Bridge and two westbound lanes between Hurontario Street and Erin Mills Parkway will be impacted by closures in the coming weeks.
The lane closures will take place through Nov. 30 at various times, including on weekends, between as early as 10 p.m. and as late as 8 a.m. the following mornings.
Temporary nighttime/overnight closures and other restrictions have been commonplace since 2022 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 Street to Mississauga Road, and beyond, is expected to impact traffic for the duration of the project.
