A section of Mississauga Road by the QEW will partially close to traffic during nights/overnights for the next two weeks as work continues on the highway bridge over the Credit River.
The major road, between North Sheridan Way and the QEW westbound off-ramp to Mississauga Road, will be reduced to one lane on most nights/overnights through Friday, Oct. 27, according to officials with the QEW/Credit River Improvement Project overseeing the major bridge rehabilitation work.
Time of the lane closure is 8 p.m. each night until 5 a.m. the following mornings, with the exception of Oct. 20 and 21 (no lane closure), project leaders say.
During partial closures, two-way traffic will be maintained at all times under flagging conditions, officials say.

Meanwhile, motorists and area residents are reminded that South Sheridan Way, between Gallant Drive and Indian Grove, will be reduced to one lane today through Wednesday (Oct. 16-18) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.
Officials say two-way traffic will be maintained at all times over the three days under flagging conditions.
In addition, QEW motorists are reminded that four lanes on the busy highway in Mississauga will shut down to traffic each night/overnight for the next four-plus weeks.
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 until Nov. 15, 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.
