Crews are scheduled overnight on Sunday and Monday, September 25 and 26 to intermittently stop traffic on Ponkan Road just west of Plymouth Sorrento Road as part of building the Wekiva Parkway (State Road 429). Flaggers will periodically hold up traffic from 7:00 p.m. - 6:00 a.m. each night to allow crews to install bridge beams.
Electronic message boards are 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.
