(APOPKA, FL) – On Monday night, April 17, crews will alternate traffic through one lane on Kelly Park Road between Round Lake Road and Plymouth Sorrento Road as part of building the Wekiva Parkway (State Road 429). This will allow crews to work on the signal mast arms from 7 p.m. – 5 a.m.
On Tuesday, April 18, flaggers will alternate traffic through one lane on Kelly Park Road near Plymouth Sorrento Road to repair asphalt pavement from 8:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. After they finish the work, crews will then shift asphalt repairs onto Plymouth Sorrento Road near the same intersection.
Flaggers will direct traffic and 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 $46.6 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 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 completed, the 25-mile parkway will complete Central Florida’s beltway, while helping to protect the natural resources surrounding the Wekiva River.
