QEW closures: what lanes and ramps will be closed and when in Mississauga
Published September 22, 2023 at 11:00 am
Four lanes on the QEW in Mississauga will shut down to traffic each night/overnight for the next three weeks — including weekends — as work continues on the highway bridge over the Credit River.
A pair of eastbound 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 the closures, which continue until Oct. 13.
The closures will take place at various times between 10 p.m. and 8 a.m. the following mornings, according to officials with the QEW/Credit River Improvement Project overseeing the major bridge rehabilitation work.
Meanwhile, several additional closures are scheduled to take place from 10 p.m. this coming Sunday (Sept. 24) until 5 a.m. Monday morning.
Two lanes of the eastbound QEW between Erin Mills Parkway and Hurontario Street will be closed during that time while a pair of highway ramps will shut down from 11 p.m. until 5 a.m.
The South Sheridan Way on-ramp to QEW eastbound and the eastbound highway off-ramp to Hurontario Street will be impacted with full closures.
Closures are also slated for next Wednesday night (Sept. 27) from 10 p.m. until 6 a.m. Thursday, officials say.
Two lanes of the westbound QEW from Hurontario Street to Erin Mills Parkway, the westbound off-ramp to Hurontario Street and the on-ramp to westbound QEW from Hurontario Street will be affected.
Drivers are reminded that other temporary closures both on the QEW (lanes and ramps) and on nearby roads are in effect as well at various times.
Temporary nighttime/overnight closures 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 is expected to impact traffic for the duration of the project.
