News from the Wekiva Parkway
Beginning tomorrow, crews are scheduled to intermittently stop traffic on Ponkan Road just west of Plymouth Sorrento Road as part of building the Wekiva Parkway (State Road 429). An off-duty officer will periodically hold up traffic between 7:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. to allow a large number of trucks hauling dirt to cross the roadway. This operation will run through Friday, February 26, 2016.
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’s $56 million project to build the Wekiva Parkway from where SR 429 ends near US 441 to Ponkan Road. Once completed, the 25-mile parkway will complete Central Florida’s beltway, while helping to protect the natural resources surrounding the Wekiva River.
