The Central Florida Expressway Authority (CFX) is performing capacity improvements on State Road 429 (Daniel Webster Western Beltway) from West Road to State Road 414 (John Land Apopka Expressway) to reduce congestion and improve traffic flow. This 3.4-mile project will add a travel lane in each direction, expanding the expressway from four to six lanes (three travel lanes in each direction). Several sound walls are planned for this segment; please see the map for the location of each proposed sound wall.
Wider median shoulders, known as part-time shoulders, are also being added to temporarily accommodate traffic during emergency response events, such as traffic accidents or hurricane evacuations. The entire project area will be resurfaced as part of this project.
This is one of three capacity improvements projects on SR 429 between Tilden Road and SR 414.
During construction, temporary lane and ramp closures will be necessary to accommodate work. To minimize the impact of construction on motorists traveling on SR 429, lane and ramp closures will not be permitted during peak travel times. There will be night and weekend work on this project.
For the safety of motorists and work crews, speed limits will be strictly enforced during construction. Speeding fines are doubled in work zones when workers are present. Motorists are reminded to change lanes for safety when they see RoadRangers assisting other motorists or flashing lights — it’s Florida law.
