Breaking News: QEW Partially Closed as Vehicle Bursts Into Flames Near Hamilton

A section of the Queen Elizabeth Way in Hamilton, Ontario is currently closed due to a dramatic vehicle fire at the base of the Burlington Skyway bridge. The blaze engulfed the vehicle and prompted the closure of all Niagara-bound lanes starting at Woodward Avenue.

Toronto-bound QEW traffic has also been reduced to just one lane near Nikola Tesla Boulevard because of an unrelated incident. As a result, massive delays and backlogs are expected in both directions on this vital transportation corridor.
