429 Connector Road detour beginning tomorrow


Crews are scheduled to close the Connector Road to through traffic at State Road 429 (Daniel Webster Western Beltway) near US 441 over the weekend. The intersection closure is scheduled from 7:00 PM on Sunday, August 21, 2016 to 6:00 AM on Tuesday, August 23, 2016.

This will allow crews to continue to set bridge beams as part of building the Wekiva Parkway (State Road 429).

No through traffic will be allowed on the Connector Road at SR 429 during this operation. This work will require closing the SR 429 northbound left-turn lanes at the Connector Road for the weekend. The SR 429 northbound right-turn lane onto the Connector Road will remain open to provide access to Plymouth Sorrento Road and US 441.

441 429 connector roadMotorists on Plymouth Sorrento Road who wish to go south on SR 429 must turn right onto US 441, and then turn right onto the Connector Road to access the southbound SR 429 ramp.

Flaggers will direct traffic and electronic message boards are posted to alert drivers. Bad weather or other unforeseen circumstances could delay or prolong work.

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.
