Crews are scheduled to close northbound State Road 429 (Daniel Webster Western Beltway) from State Road 414 (John Land Apopka Expressway) to near US 441 the nights of August 28 and 29. The closures are needed to install an overhead dynamic message sign and related work as part of building the Wekiva Parkway (State Road 429).
The SR 429 northbound closures are scheduled from 10 p.m. Sunday, August 28 to 6 a.m. Monday, August 29, and from 9 p.m. Monday, August 29 to 6 a.m. Tuesday, August 30.
Prior to the lane closures, SR 429 northbound traffic will be detoured onto SR 414 and then onto SR 451 to get to US 441. This operation will include closing first one, and then a second SR 429 northbound lane heading toward SR 414. The SR 429 northbound lane closures south of SR 414 will begin at 9 p.m. Sunday and 8 p.m. Monday.
The SR 414 westbound exit to SR 429 northbound also will be closed during the above dates and times.
Safety devices and electronic message boards will be posted to alert drivers. 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.
