Lane Closures Scheduled On SR 453 As Part Of Wekiva Parkway Landscaping


(MOUNT DORA, FL) – Crews are scheduled at night on August 19-25 to conduct single lane closures on the southbound State Road 453 ramp near SR 46. The lane closures, scheduled from 9 p.m. – 6 a.m. nightly, are needed to landscape the median along the new Wekiva Parkway (State Road 429).


Electronic message boards and law enforcement officers will be in place to alert drivers. Wet weather or other unforeseen circumstances could delay or prolong work.



CFX opened its final five miles of the parkway on March 31, 2018. The opening marked a major milestone in having more than half of the entire 25-mile parkway open to traffic. This portion of the parkway provides a crucial expressway connection to SR 46 and communities throughout Lake, Orange and Seminole Counties.


The new parkway sections (2A, 2B and 2C) are located between Kelly Park Road and State Road 46, and between Round Lake Road and County Road 435 (Mount Plymouth Road). Work on the three sections began in 2016 and cost $168 million to construct.
