CFX Section 1A: Connector Road Closure Scheduled for Nightly Bridgework

April 2017
(APOPKA, FL) – Crews are scheduled the nights of Monday, April 17 and Tuesday April 18 to close Connector Road to through traffic at State Road 429 (Daniel Webster Western Beltway) near US 441. The closures scheduled from 8 p.m. - 6 a.m. will allow crews to do overhead bridge work as part of building the Wekiva Parkway (State Road 429).

No through traffic will be allowed on the Connector Road at SR 429 during Monday’s operation. This work will require closing the SR 429 northbound left-turn lanes at the Connector Road at night. The SR 429 northbound right-turn lane onto the Connector Road will remain open to provide access to Plymouth Sorrento Road and US 441.

During Tuesday’s operation, no through traffic will be allowed from US 441 onto the Connector Road. Traffic wishing to go southbound on SR 429 must continue south on US 441 to SR 451 to get on SR 429. Motorists traveling northbound US 441 will access southbound 429 via Plymouth Sorrento and Connector Road. Motorists on Plymouth Sorrento SB will be able to access SB 429 at Connector Road, the westbound road lane will remain open for traffic. 


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 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.
