Four lanes on a busy stretch of the QEW in Mississauga will be shut down each night/overnight for the next three weeks 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 from April 16 until May 6.

Also, the QEW eastbound off-ramp to South Sheridan Way will be closed two nights next week–Monday (April 17) and Wednesday (April 19) from midnight to 5 a.m. both dates.

Westbound 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 7 a.m. the following morning, again depending on night of the week.

Officials also remind motorists that two eastbound QEW lanes and two westbound lanes along the same stretch will be shut down to traffic at various times through April 16 to allow for “highway staging implementation.”

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.
