QEW Mississauga lane and ramp closures
Motorists can expect more delays on and around the QEW in Mississauga.

Several QEW lanes, ramps and nearby roads in Mississauga will be closed to traffic this Thursday and Friday nights/overnights as work continues on the highway bridge over the Credit River.

From as early as 10 p.m. on those two nights until 5 a.m. the following mornings, two eastbound lanes on the QEW between east of Erin Mills Parkway and west of Hurontario Street will be shut down to motorists, according to officials with the QEW/Credit River Improvement Project overseeing the major bridge rehabilitation work.

Other closures those two nights/overnights are as follows:

  • full closure of Mississauga Road from QEW westbound off-ramp to South Sheridan Way (9 p.m. until 6 a.m.). Paid-duty officers will be on site to provide traffic control at South Sheridan Way and QEW westbound off-ramp intersections. Access to Mississauga Crescent will be maintained at all times
  • full closure of southbound Erin Mills Parkway on-ramp to QEW eastbound (7 p.m. until 5 a.m.)
  • full closure of South Sheridan Way on-ramp to QEW eastbound (10 p.m. until 5 a.m.)
  • full closure of QEW eastbound off-ramp to South Sheridan Way (10 p.m. until 5 a.m.)

Motorists and area residents are also reminded that a section of Mississauga Road, between North Sheridan Way and the QEW westbound off-ramp to Mississauga Road, will be reduced to one lane through this Friday, from 8 p.m. nightly until 5 a.m.

Two-way traffic will be maintained at all times under flagging conditions, officials say.

In addition, QEW motorists are reminded that four lanes on the busy highway in Mississauga will shut down to traffic each night/overnight until Nov. 15.

Officials say a pair of eastbound lanes from Erin Mills Parkway to the Credit River Bridge and two westbound lanes between Hurontario Street and Erin Mills Parkway will be impacted by the closures.

The closures will take place at various times, including on weekends, between 10 p.m. and 8 a.m. the following mornings, according to officials.

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

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