QEW closures: How traffic will be impacted in Mississauga in the next few weeks
Published November 13, 2023 at 10:28 am
Lanes and ramps on the QEW in Mississauga will be closed to traffic at various times during nighttime and overnight hours over 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 say the following closures/lane reductions, which also include sections of roads near the highway, are scheduled in the coming days and weeks:
- QEW westbound off-ramp to Mississauga Road will be closed tonight (Nov. 13) from midnight until 5 a.m. Tuesday morning
- Premium Way, between Stavebank Road and Lynchmere Avenue, will be reduced to one lane of traffic on weekdays through Nov. 17 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily. Two-way traffic will be maintained at all times as will access to all area roads. There will be no lane reductions on weekends
- Mississauga Road, between North Sheridan Way and the QEW eastbound off-ramp, will be reduced to a single lane nightly from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. through Nov. 14. Two-way traffic will be maintained under flagging conditions
- QEW eastbound on- and off-ramps at South Sheridan Way will be fully closed from this Friday (Nov. 17) at 10 p.m. until Monday morning at 5 a.m.
In addition, a pair of eastbound QEW 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 closures in the coming weeks.
The lane closures will take place through Nov. 30 at various times, including on weekends, between as early as 10 p.m. and as late as 8 a.m. the following mornings.
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.
