Two lanes, two ramps to close this week on busy part of QEW in Mississauga
Published September 12, 2023 at 9:54 am
Two lanes and a pair of ramps on the QEW in Mississauga will close to traffic this coming Thursday night into Friday morning as crews continue working on the highway bridge over the Credit River.
The closures will impact two eastbound lanes between Erin Mills Parkway and Hurontario Street, the South Sheridan Way on-ramp to QEW eastbound and the eastbound off-ramp to Hurontario Street.
Officials with the QEW/Credit River Improvement Project overseeing the major bridge rehabilitation work say the lanes will shut down from Thursday night at 10 and 11 p.m. until Friday morning at 5 a.m. while both ramps will fully close to traffic from 11 p.m. until 5 a.m.
Motorists are also reminded of other closures that remain in effect this week on the QEW.
Two eastbound lanes from Erin Mills Parkway to the Credit River Bridge and two westbound lanes from Hurontario Street to Erin Mills Parkway are closed nightly from as early as 10 p.m. some nights until as late as 8 a.m. the following mornings, according to officials.
Project leaders also remind motorists and residents that Premium Way, between Stavebank Road and Lynchmere Avenue, will be reduced to one lane between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on weekdays until Sept. 15.
Temporary nighttime/overnight closures have been commonplace since last fall 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 St. to Mississauga Rd. is expected to impact traffic for the duration of the project.
