The Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW) is Ontario’s oldest freeway, dating back to the 1930s. The QEW is a critical element in the provincial highway network and is one of Ontario’s most important transportation facilities in terms of trade, commuter and tourist traffic. Through Missisauga, the QEW is a six lane roadway with a narrow median, closely flanking discontinuous two-way Service Roads, seven interchanges of various configurations and geometry, and two major crossings at Etobicoke Creek and the Credit River. The 250 m long Credit River Bridge is over 70 years old and is in poor condition. The QEW has the potential to become even more significant to the transportation system of the future, as it evolves to accommodate the growing needs of transit, goods movement, demand management policies, and the surrounding communities. However, presently the QEW is severely congested during peak periods.

The Ministry of Transportation has retained McCormick Rankin Corporation (MRC) to initiate a Preliminary Design and Class Environmental Assessment Study to determine a long-term strategy to address the rehabilitation needs of the QEW Credit River Bridge and to address the future requirements for the QEW from Mississauga Road to the west of Hurontario Street, in the City of Mississauga, Region of Peel.

The purpose of the Class EA study is to address the following within the study limits:

  • The long-term rehabilitation needs of the QEW Credit River Bridge.
  • The future improvement needs and requirements for the QEW and the Mississauga Road Interchange.
