Kelly Park Road to be closed during the day this week


Kelly Park Road is scheduled to be temporarily closed between Round Lake Road and Plymouth Sorrento Road as part of building the Wekiva Parkway (State Road 429).

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 $46.6 million project to build the Wekiva Parkway from Ponkan Road to a planned interchange at Kelly Park Road. Work began August 3, 2015. 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.
