Temporary Detour Planned for 429 Exit at 441



Drivers should be alert for lane closures and detours on the Connector Road to State Road 429 near US 441 later this week.

The closures and detours are scheduled from 9:00 PM to 6:00 AM on Wednesday and Thursday nights - 2/17 and 2/18.

Crews need to move barrier walls and complete other work as part of building the Wekiva Parkway.

The SR 429 northbound left-turn lanes will be closed however the SR 429 northbound right-turn lane onto the Connector Road will remain open to provide access to Plymouth Sorrento Road.

Motorists on Plymouth Sorrento Road who wish to go south on SR 429 must turn right onto US 441, and then turn right onto the Connector Road to access the southbound SR 429 ramp.

The west-bound portion of the Connector Road will be closed during this operation.

Electronic message boards and other signs will be in place to direct motorists through the detour. Law enforcement officers also will be on site.

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. Once completed, the 25-mile parkway will complete Central Florida’s beltway, while helping to protect the natural resources surrounding the Wekiva River.
