Crews building part of the Wekiva Parkway (State Road 429) are scheduled to begin driving bridge piles at Yothers Road Wednesday, November 9, Thursday, November 10, and Saturday, November 12, 2016. The pile driving is from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
According to Kymberly Graves, spokesperson for the Wekiva Parkway, steps will be taken to minimize the impact of construction to the surrounding community, however, nearby residents can expect some level of noise and possible vibrations throughout the course of this work.
Bad weather or other unforeseen circumstances could delay or prolong work. Motorists are urged to use caution in the construction area for their safety and that of the work crews.
This work is part of the Central Florida Expressway Authority’s $56 million project to build the Wekiva Parkway from where the SR 429 currently ends at the Connector Road to just north of Ponkan Road. This project is among five parkway sections being built by CFX, totaling 10 miles and more than $270 million in construction costs. Once completed, the 25-mile parkway will complete Central Florida’s beltway, while helping to protect the natural resources surrounding the Wekiva River.
