Several QEW lanes, ramps and part of a busy nearby road will be closed this coming Monday night/overnight (April 3) to traffic as crews continue work on the highway bridge over the Credit River.

Officials with the QEW/Credit River Improvement Project overseeing the major bridge rehabilitation project say the latest closures are to allow for Mississauga Rd. overpass girder delivery and installation.

To allow work to be completed, Mississauga Rd. between South Sheridan Way and the QEW westbound off-ramp will be closed from 9 p.m. Monday to 6 a.m. the following morning (see aerial photo below).

Access to Mississauga Cres. will be maintained with help from paid duty police officers, project leaders say.

Additionally on Monday night into Tuesday morning, two QEW eastbound lanes between Erin Mills Pkwy. and Hurontario St. will be closed to traffic.

The first lane will close from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. while the second lane will be shut down from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Also, the eastbound on-ramps from both southbound and northbound Erin Mills Pkwy. will be closed as well, the former from 7 p.m. Monday to 5 a.m. Tuesday and the latter from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Officials also remind motorists that two eastbound QEW lanes and two westbound lanes between Erin Mills Pkwy. and Hurontario St. will be shut down to traffic at various times through April 16 to allow for “highway staging implementation.”

However, there will be no closures April 7 to 9, Easter weekend, officials say.

It’s been a busy couple of months for QEW construction as the milder weather has, for the most part, set in.

Only three nights in all of March have not seen lane or ramp closures in Mississauga as work ramps up as the weather gets warmer.

Temporary nighttime/overnight closures have been commonplace since last fall both on the QEW and nearby roads due to the massive project that began well over a year ago.

More traffic disruptions are anticipated as work proceeds in the coming 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.
