Ongoing lane and ramp closures on the QEW in Mississauga will continue well into late fall, and beyond, as crews continue work on the rehabilitation of the highway bridge over the Credit River.

Temporary nighttime/overnight closures have been commonplace the past several months both on the QEW and on Mississauga Rd. where it connects with the busy highway.

Now, officials with the QEW/Credit River Improvement Project, who are overseeing the massive undertaking, say major work and associated lane/ramp closures are expected to continue into late fall and early winter.

The latest lane closures to be announced by project officials will affect four lanes of traffic (two eastbound, two westbound) between Oct. 31 and Nov. 15 as work crews engage in “winter staging activities.”

During that period, two eastbound lanes from Erin Mills Pkwy. to Hurontario St. and two westbound lanes from Hurontario St. to Erin Mills Pkwy. will be closed at various times at night and overnight.

Closure times vary from night to night and lane to lane, but all closures will occur between 10 p.m. and 8 a.m., with most not in effect until 11 p.m. or later.

Notices of temporary lane and ramp closures on the QEW in Mississauga have been coming fast and furious the past couple or months. Project officials have been putting out closure notices almost every other day. 

As work continues on the Credit River bridge project, drivers and area residents can expect ongoing traffic disruptions to impact part of the QEW and other areas in the vicinity of Mississauga Rd. and the highway 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 construction.
