Section 8: Shoulder Closures Scheduled for State Road 417 Ramp to I-4

August 5, 2019
Sanford, Fla. – Crews are scheduled nightly from 10 p.m. - 5 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 5 – Wednesday, Aug. 7, to close the shoulder of the State Road (S.R.) 417 ramp to westbound Interstate 4 (I-4) as part of building the Wekiva Parkway (S.R. 429). The ramp shoulder closures will allow crews to unload concrete barrier wall for future use. 
Law enforcement officers will be on site and electronic message boards are posted to alert drivers. Please note this schedule may change due to weather or other unexpected conditions.  
The work is being conducted as part of Wekiva Parkway Section 8, which is building the interchange to connect S.R. 429, S.R. 417, and Interstate 4. Construction on this 2.63-mile project includes building nearly two dozen bridges, aesthetic walls and a toll gantry. The Wekiva Parkway includes all electronic tolling for the greatest customer convenience and to keep traffic moving.
Work on this $253.3 million project began in December 2018 and is expected to finish in late 2022.
