Lane closed on busy road near QEW in Mississauga so highway loop can be moved
Published April 10, 2023 at 11:22 am
Part of a busy road next to the QEW in Mississauga will be reduced to one lane every night/overnight this week 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 the lane reduction will take place on South Sheridan Way between Indian Grove and the South Sheridan Way ramp interchange.
That section of the road will be impacted starting tonight (April 10) and continuing through Saturday morning (April 15) from 8 p.m. each night until 5 a.m. the following morning.
“The lane reduction is to facilitate loop relocation on South Sheridan Way,” project leaders said in an online update.
Meanwhile, two QEW lanes and an off-ramp will be closed to traffic tonight (April 10) through Tuesday morning, project officials say.
Two eastbound lanes from Erin Mills Pkwy. to Hurontario St. will be closed from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. (first lane) and midnight to 5 a.m. (second lane).
Also, the QEW eastbound off-ramp to South Sheridan Way will be closed from midnight to 5 a.m.
Those closures are to allow for line painting operations.
Motorists are reminded that a section of another road near the QEW will also see a lane reduction throughout this week.
Mississauga Rd. between Mississauga Cres. and South Sheridan Way will see one lane closed to traffic each night/overnight through Friday to allow crews to work on the Mississauga Rd. QEW overpass.
That section of Mississauga Rd. will have one lane closed from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night/overnight.
Project leaders say two-way traffic will be maintained through flagging operations and access to Mississauga Cres. will be maintained at all times.
Officials also remind motorists that two eastbound QEW 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.”
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.
