QEW lane and ramp closures in Mississauga March 2024.

Two lanes on a busy section of the QEW in Mississauga will close to overnight traffic for 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 between Erin Mills Parkway and Hurontario Street will close to traffic nightly from March 18 through March 29.

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

Also during that time period, the South Sheridan Way on-ramp to the eastbound QEW will fully close on March 18, 20, 25 and 27 between midnight and 5 a.m. for ongoing work.

That on-ramp is also closed during the same nightly time period tonight (March 5) and this Thursday in addition to next Wednesday and Friday, officials say.

Meanwhile, traffic delays are also expected due to lane reductions on roads near the QEW next week.

On March 13 and 15, alternating single-lane closures will be in effect at these two locations:

  • Mississauga Road between QEW ramp terminal and Kedleston Way — 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.
  • South Sheridan Way between Indian Grove and Mississauga Road — 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Officials note two-way traffic will be maintained at all times under flagging conditions in those areas.

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.
