Highway lanes and an off-ramp to close nightly on QEW in Mississauga

QEW lane and ramp closures in Mississauga.

Lanes on and near the QEW in Mississauga will shut down to traffic overnights the next two weeks as major repair 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 a pair of eastbound lanes and two westbound lanes between Erin Mills Parkway and Hurontario Street will close nightly and overnights until May 3.

One of the eastbound lanes will shut down from 11 p.m. until 5 a.m. the next morning while the second lane will close between midnight and 5 a.m., according to project leaders. One westbound lane will close from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. while the second will shut down from midnight to 5 a.m.

Additionally, one lane on South Sheridan Way next to the QEW, between Indian Grove Road and Mississauga Road, will close down this Thursday night at 8 p.m. and reopen the following morning at 5 a.m., project leaders said.

The area will see alternating lane closures in each direction and traffic in both directions will be maintained at all times via signals.

During that same time, the QEW eastbound off-ramp to South Sheridan Way will also shut down to all traffic.

Temporary nighttime/overnight closures and other restrictions have been commonplace since 2022 both on the QEW and nearby roads due to the massive bridge project that began nearly three years ago.

More traffic disruptions are anticipated as work continues in the coming weeks and 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.
