(APOPKA, FL) – On Thursday, December 15 and Friday, December 16, crews are scheduled to close Kelly Park Road between Round Lake Road and Plymouth Sorrento Road as part of building the Wekiva Parkway (State Road 429). The closure from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. will allow crews to pave and stripe Kelly Park Road.
Traffic will be detoured via Round Lake Road, Ponkan Road and Plymouth Sorrento Road during the closure. Flaggers will direct traffic and electronic message boards are posted to alert drivers.
On Saturday, December 17, crews will alternate traffic through one lane on Kelly Park Road east of Plymouth Sorrento Road to finish paving from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
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.
This 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. Work began August 3, 2015, and is scheduled to finish in the spring of 2017.
This project is among five parkway sections being built by CFX, totaling 10 miles and more than $270 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.
