A stretch of sidewalk in the heart of Mississauga will be shut down to pedestrians for the next two-and-a-half months as crews continue work on rehabilitation of the QEW bridge over the Credit River.

Officials with the QEW/Credit River Improvement Project overseeing the major undertaking say the pedestrian walkway on the north side of Premium Way between Dickson Rd. and Lynchmere Ave., just west of Hurontario St., will remain closed until May 1 as work is completed.

“Pedestrians will be detoured to the south side of Premium Way starting at the northeast corner of Dickson Rd. and Premium Way,” project leaders said in an update, adding the closure will allow for ongoing construction activities on Premium Way related to the larger bridge rehabilitation project.

Temporary nighttime/overnight road closures have been commonplace the past year or so both on the QEW and on Mississauga Rd. where it connects with the busy highway due to the massive project that began well over a year ago.

More traffic disruptions are anticipated as work proceeds in the coming weeks and 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.
