Crews today have reopened Connector Road to through traffic at State Road 429 (Daniel Webster Western Beltway) near US 441. The intersection had been closed to prevent travel under the new bridge during high winds and heavy rain from Hurricane Matthew. All travel movements are now available in this location. Motorists are urged to use caution in the construction area for their safety.
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.
