CFX Section 1A SR 429 Nighttime Closure & Detour

July 2017

APOPKA _ Crews are scheduled tonight, July 11, to close northbound State Road 429 (Daniel Webster Western Beltway) from State Road 414 (John Land Apopka Expressway) to near US 441; the nighttime closures are scheduled through Friday, July 14. The closures from 10 p.m. - 5 a.m. will allow crews to install an overhead dynamic message sign as part of building the Wekiva Parkway (State Road 429).


SR 429 northbound traffic will be detoured onto SR 414 and then onto SR 451 to get to US 441.


The SR 414 westbound exit to SR 429 northbound also will be closed during the above dates and times. SR 414 westbound traffic trying to get to SR 429 northbound must exit at SR 451 to get to US 441. SR 414 westbound to SR 429 southbound will remain open during this detour.


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 $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.
