Major road beside QEW in Mississauga will partially close for seven nights
Published May 8, 2023 at 1:12 pm
A busy road near the QEW in Mississauga will be reduced to a single lane of traffic for seven nights/overnights starting next Monday (May 15) 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 South Sheridan Way, between the QEW eastbound off-ramp and Indian Grove Rd., will see one lane closed to traffic between May 15 and 18 and again between May 23 and 25 from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. the following mornings.
The lane closure will allow for ongoing work related to the rehabilitation of the bridge.
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.
Meanwhile, four lanes of the QEW in the heart of Mississauga will continue to shut down each night/overnight through the end of May.
Two eastbound and two westbound lanes between Erin Mills Pkwy. and Hurontario St. will be closed at various times in the late evening and overnight hours each night through May 27, with the exception of May 19.
The lanes will stay open on Friday, May 19 leading into the Victoria Day weekend.
The westbound QEW lane closures through May 27 will take place from as early as 11 p.m. to as late the following morning as 7 a.m., depending on night of the week.
Eastbound closures will take place from as early as 10 p.m. to as late as 7 a.m. the following morning, again depending on night of the week.
Temporary nighttime/overnight closures have been commonplace since last fall both on the QEW and nearby roads due to the massive project that began some 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.
