Two highway lanes, an off-ramp and a busy section of road near the QEW in Mississauga will close to traffic for several nights/overnights this coming weekend (June 9-11) and next 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 work say two eastbound QEW lanes between Erin Mills Pkwy. and the Credit River Bridge will close late night/overnight this Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The closures will be in effect from 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights until 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. the following mornings (lanes will reopen at different times) and from 10 and 11 p.m. on Sunday night until 5 a.m. Monday morning.

Additionally, the QEW eastbound off-ramp to South Sheridan Way will be fully closed those same three nights/overnights from 11 p.m. to 8 a.m. (Friday and Saturday) and 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. (Sunday into Monday).

Meanwhile, Mississauga Rd., between South Sheridan Way and Mississauga Cres., will be down to a single lane nightly next Monday through Saturday (June 12 to 17).

The lane closure will be in effect 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. on each date.

Project leaders say two-way traffic will be maintained at all times under flagging conditions and access to and from Mississauga Cres. will remain open at all times from the north.

Meanwhile, nightly lane and periodic ramp closures on the QEW remain in effect through June 17.

Additionally, Premium Way, between Stavebank Rd. and Lynchmere Ave., will be down to one lane on weekdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. through June 30, project leaders say.

Officials say two-way traffic will be maintained at all times via flagging operations and all streets and roads will be accessible.

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.
