Section 8: Pile Driving Scheduled to Begin Near International Parkway, I-4 and S.R. 417

November 8, 2019

Sanford, Fla. – Crews building the final limited-access section of the Wekiva Parkway (State Road (S.R.) 429) are scheduled to begin driving bridge piles the week of Monday, Nov. 11. The pile driving will last for a number of months.


While steps will be taken to minimize the impact of construction to the surrounding community, nearby residents and businesses can expect some level of noise and other impacts throughout the course of this work.


The work is being conducted as part of Wekiva Parkway Section 8, which is building the interchange to connect S.R. 429, S.R. 417 and Interstate 4 (I-4). Construction on this 2.63-mile project includes building nearly two dozen bridges, aesthetic walls and a toll gantry. The Wekiva Parkway includes all electronic tolling for the greatest customer convenience and to keep traffic moving. 


Work on this $253.3 million project began in December 2018.
