CFX Section 1A Re-opening Yothers Road on June 30

June 2017

(APOPKA, FL) – Crews are set to re-open Yothers Road on Friday, June 30 at noon, to all traffic as part of building the Wekiva Parkway (State Road 429). The road has been closed, and a detour in place, to allow crews to build a new Yothers Road bridge over the parkway.
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 section, which began in June of 2015, is scheduled to open to traffic this summer.
This project is among five parkway sections being built by CFX, totaling 10 miles and more than $271 million in construction costs. Once finished, the 25-mile parkway will complete Central Florida’s beltway, while helping to protect the natural resources surrounding the Wekiva River.
