Multiple lane and ramp closures on QEW in Mississauga nightly for next three weeks
Published May 25, 2023 at 9:57 am
Four lanes and three ramps on the QEW in the heart of Mississauga will continue to shut down each night/overnight beyond the middle of June 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 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 June 17.
The lane closures were initially scheduled to take place from April 16 until the second week of May, but project leaders say they’ve needed to extend that period.
The westbound QEW lane closures 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 8 a.m. the following morning, again depending on night of the week.
Meanwhile, the following ramps will be closed at specific times:
- QEW eastbound off-ramp to South Sheridan Way (May 26 and 28, midnight to 5 a.m.)
- QEW eastbound on-ramp from South Sheridan Way (May 26 and 28, midnight to 5 a.m.)
- QEW eastbound on-ramp from northbound Mississauga Rd. (May 25, midnight to 5 a.m.)
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.
Temporary nighttime/overnight closures have been commonplace since last fall both on the QEW and nearby roads due to the massive project that began well over a year 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.
