(APOPKA, FL) – Crews are scheduled today through Wednesday, January 18, to close Kelly Park Road west of Plymouth Sorrento Road as part of building the Wekiva Parkway (State Road 429). The closures from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. will allow crews to finish painting bridge beams over Kelly Park Road.
During the closure, traffic will be detoured via Round Lake Road, Ponkan Road and Plymouth Sorrento Road. 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 Ponkan Road to a planned interchange at Kelly Park Road. Work began August 3, 2015. 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.
