Multiple lanes to shut down nightly most of July on QEW in Mississauga

QEW lane closures in Mississauga July 2024.

Several lanes and ramps on the QEW in Mississauga will shut down to traffic during late-night and overnight hours this weekend and for the next few weeks as work continues on the highway bridge over the Credit River.

Officials with the QEW/Credit River Improvement Project overseeing the major bridge rehabilitation work said in an email update this week that two eastbound lanes between Erin Mills Parkway and Hurontario Street will close Friday through Sunday nights from as early as 10:30 p.m. to as late as 8 a.m. the following mornings.

Specifically, the lane closures will be in place as follows:

  • Friday — first lane closed 11 p.m. until 7 a.m., second lane from midnight until 6 a.m.
  • Saturday — first lane 11 p.m. until 8 a.m., second lane midnight until 7 a.m.
  • Sunday — two lanes closed from 10:30 p.m. until 5 a.m.

Also this weekend, the QEW eastbound off-ramp to South Sheridan Way and the eastbound on-ramp from South Sheridan Way will close from Friday at 11 p.m. until Monday morning at 8 a.m., according to project leaders.

In addition, the same two eastbound lanes (between Erin Mills Parkway and Hurontario Street) will close nightly at various times between next Monday and July 22 as will a pair of westbound QEW lanes between Hurontario Street and Erin Mills Parkway.

Lane closures will be in effect from as early as 10 p.m. until as late the following mornings as 8 a.m., officials said. The closures will also be in place weekend nights/overnights.

Project leaders also remind motorists and area residents that one lane will be closed on a section of Premium Way just to the north of the QEW between July 4 and 31.

The lane reduction, to take place between Stavebank and Dickson roads, will be in place on weekdays from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. There will be no lane reductions on Saturdays and Sundays, officials noted.

During the lane reduction period, two-way traffic will be maintained at all times under flagging conditions and access to Dickson Road and Lynchmere Avenue will be maintained at all times as well.

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.
