TRAFFIC ALERT FOR THURSDAY, DEC. 17TH!
Between December 16th – 23rd and during the hours of 7am and 6pm, construction 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 those hours to allow a large number of trucks hauling dirt to cross the roadway.
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.
The work is part of the Central Florida Expressway's $46.6 million project to build the Wekiva Parkway from Ponkan Road to a planned interchange at Kelly Park Road. Once completed, the 25-mile parkway will complete Central Florida’s beltway, while helping to protect the natural resources surrounding the Wekiva River.
