Four QEW lanes in the heart of Mississauga will be closed overnights this Christmas weekend as crews continue work on rehabilitation of the highway bridge over the Credit River.
Officials with the QEW/Credit River Improvement Project overseeing the major undertaking say two westbound lanes between Hurontario St. and Mississauga Rd., two eastbound lanes between west of Mississauga Rd. and just east of Mississauga Rd., and the QEW eastbound off-ramp to South Sheridan Way will be impacted by the closures.
The following lane/ramp closures are in effect Friday night into Saturday morning and Saturday night into Sunday morning:
QEW westbound between Hurontario St. and Mississauga Rd.–lane one from midnight Friday to 7 a.m. Saturday, and 11 p.m. Saturday to 8 a.m. Sunday; lane two from midnight Friday to 6 a.m. Saturday, and midnight Saturday to 7 a.m. Sunday
QEW eastbound between west of Mississauga Rd. to just east of Mississauga Rd.–lane one from 11 p.m. Friday to 7 a.m. Saturday, and 11 p.m. Saturday to 8 a.m. Sunday; lane two from midnight Friday to 6 a.m. Saturday, and midnight Saturday to 7 a.m. Sunday
QEW eastbound off-ramp to South Sheridan Way–closed from midnight to 5 a.m. both Friday and Saturday
Project leaders anticipate regular delays as the work is completed, but note the work also depends on the weather. An impending large winter storm due to hit the area this weekend may force rescheduling of the work.
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 due to the massive project that began well over a year ago.
All work is being completed in order to facilitate winter staging activities, project officials say, adding more traffic disruptions are anticipated as work proceeds 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 the project.
