Two lanes on the QEW in Mississauga will shut down to traffic Monday night into Tuesday morning (Dec. 12-13) as work crews continue 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 Erin Mills Pkwy. and the westbound off-ramp to Mississauga Rd. will be impacted by the temporary closures.
The first lane will close from 11 p.m. on Monday to 6 a.m. Tuesday while the second lane will shut down from midnight to 5 a.m., project leaders say.
The off-ramp will be fully closed from midnight to 5 a.m.
The closures will allow work crews to refresh the pavement markings on the busy highway, according to officials.
Meanwhile, Mississauga Rd. near the QEW will be completely shut down to traffic the weekend of Dec. 16-19 as work crews complete demolition of the highway overpass.
The task marks a milestone in the ongoing rehabilitation of the QEW bridge over the Credit River, a massive project that began well over a year ago.
The closure will allow workers to carry out the “completion of the demolition of the existing QEW overpass at Mississauga Rd.,” project officials say.
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.
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.
