(APOPKA, FL) – A nighttime road closure is scheduled Tuesday, April 18 on Plymouth Sorrento Road just north of Haas-Ondich Road. Crews will be setting bridge beams from 8 p.m. – 7 a.m. as part of building the Wekiva Parkway (State Road 429).
During the closure, traffic will be detoured via State Road 46, Round Lake Road and Kelly Park 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.
The Central Florida Expressway Authority began construction January 4, 2016 on Wekiva Parkway Section 2B. This $79.6 million section will connect to Section 2A, located north of Hass Road between Plymouth Sorrento Road and County Road 435 (Mount Plymouth Road), and to Section 1B to the south. Work is scheduled to finish spring of 2018.
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.
