Design-Build Project 431163-5 (Map Section 4A) - From CR 435/Mount Plymouth Road to the Lake County Line
Design-Build Project 238275-6 (Map Section 4B) - From the Orange County Line to West of Old McDonald Road
FDOT completed and opened these two design-build projects on January 20, 2016. Sections 4A and 4B together form 3.14 miles of limited access toll road from County Road 435/Mount Plymouth Road, north across the Lake County Line/Orange County Line, northeast to west of Old McDonald Road and ending in an interchange at State Road 46. The toll is $0.75 for those with E-PASS or SunPASS, and $1.00, plus a $2.50 monthly administrative fee, for those without a transponder who pay their toll using Toll by Plate.
The FDOT decided to start construction in this location because all of the property needed had already been acquired as part of purchasing land for conservation. The design-build technique allows a team of design engineers and a contractor to build portions of the project as design progresses, accelerating the construction process.
The project included a partial interchange at SR 46, and building several bridges. A connector road was built to tie the new Wekiva Parkway interchange to existing SR 46. Also, a temporary connector road is in place to connect the parkway to CR 435. The temporary connection will be removed once the CFX project to the west, (map section 2A), is constructed and connected to section 4A.
Design-Build Start: November 2012
Construction Start: February 18, 2013
Project Completion: January 20, 2016
