The Wekiva Parkway (State Road (S.R.) 429) project will mark a new milestone this week as new roundabouts and a frontage road open along the S.R. 46 corridor in Seminole County.
This milestone means the Wekiva Parkway corridor is closer to its final footprint and configuration. Traffic will utilize a new frontage road and roundabouts to enhance safety and mobility. Once the project is complete, long-distance, through travel will be able to bypass the local traffic on the elevated parkway.
To achieve this milestone, westbound S.R. 46 traffic between Glade Road and River Oaks Circle/Wekiva Park Drive/Osprey Hammock Trail will be shifted to a new frontage road on the north side of the future parkway as early as 8 p.m. on Monday, July 12. This road is depicted in blue on the attached map.
Local traffic between Maureen Drive and Ross Lake Lane will be able to use the existing westbound S.R. 46 lane to access the new westbound S.R. 46 at Yankee Lake Road. This lane is depicted in purple on the attached map.
Along with the traffic shift, new roundabouts will open at Longwood Markham Road and River Oaks Circle/Wekiva Park Drive/Osprey Hammock Circle. The new roundabouts are depicted in yellow on the attached map. Additional roundabouts will open in the future at Yankee Lake Road and Lake Markham Road.
Motorists and residents are reminded to drive alert and follow posted signage.

Please note construction schedules may change due to weather or other circumstances.
