Traffic on the QEW in Mississauga will be impacted with several lane and ramp closures planned for this weekend and next week in the nighttime and overnight hours 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 westbound lanes between Hurontario St. and Erin Mills Pkwy. and the westbound off-ramp to Mississauga Rd. will be shut down to traffic starting this Friday (July 7) at midnight.

The off-ramp will reopen at 5 a.m. on Saturday morning while the two lanes will reopen at 6 a.m. and 7 a.m.

From next Monday (July 10) through July 13, the following nightly closures/reductions will be in effect:

  • single lane shut down on Mississauga Rd., between Kedleston Way and the QEW-Mississauga Rd. interchange, from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. (two-way traffic will be maintained at all times under flagging conditions and access to and from Mississauga Cres. will be maintained at all times)
  • QEW westbound off-ramp to Mississauga Rd., from midnight to 5 a.m. (on July 10 and 12 only)
  • single lane shut down on South Sheridan Way, between Mississauga Rd. and QEW-South Sheridan Way interchange from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. (two-way traffic will be maintained at all times under flagging conditions)

Temporary nighttime/overnight closures have been commonplace since last fall both on the QEW and nearby roads due to the massive project that began two years 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.
