QEW lanes and ramps in Mississauga to close numerous nights in November
Published November 4, 2022 at 2:39 pm
Four QEW lanes and several on- and off-ramps in Mississauga will be temporarily closed various nights and overnights throughout November as crews continue work on the rehabilitation of the highway bridge over the Credit River.
Two QEW eastbound lanes (Erin Mills Pkwy. to Hurontario St.) and two westbound lanes (Hurontario St. to Erin Mills Pkwy.) will close to traffic on most nights this month between the hours of 10 p.m. and 8 a.m. the following morning, according to officials with the QEW/Credit River Improvement Project overseeing the massive undertaking.
Not all closures will begin as early as 10 p.m. and only several will last until 8 a.m.
Meanwhile, project leaders say two off-ramps and an on-ramp will also be closed at various times in the coming weeks as work is completed at those locations.
The impacted highway ramps are:
- QEW westbound off-ramp to Mississauga Rd.–Nov. 4 and Nov. 6 to 8 full closure 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.
- QEW eastbound off-ramp to South Sheridan Way–Nov. 17-18 full closure from midnight to 5 a.m.
- Northbound Mississauga Rd. on-ramp to eastbound QEW–Nov. 8-9 full closure from midnight to 5 a.m.
Additionally, Mississauga Rd. between Mississauga Cr. and North Sheridan Way will be reduced to a single lane from Nov. 7 to 12 between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. (7 a.m. on Nov. 7).
All work is being completed in order to facilitate winter staging activities, project officials say, adding traffic disruptions are anticipated as work proceeds.
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.
Major work and associated lane/ramp closures are expected to continue into late fall and early winter, according to project officials.

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.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
