MTO says QEW ramp closures in Niagara are necessary for construction

The Ministry of Transportation has been causing headaches for Niagara drivers trying to use the QEW.

Many QEW on and off ramps have been closed due to construction.

MTO says these closures are necessary to create safe work areas as they work to rehabilitate the 15/16 Mile Creek structures at QEW and Highway 406. 

They say this project was planned in consultation with the City of St. Catharines and Niagara Region.
