Sanford, Fla. – Crews are scheduled on Aug. 5 – Aug. 12 to close the inside northbound and southbound lanes on International Parkway from State Road (S.R.) 417 to Wilson Road as part of building the Wekiva Parkway (S.R. 429). The lane closures, scheduled 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. daily, will allow crews to clear the median for bridge work.
Flaggers will assist in directing traffic. Electronic message boards are posted to alert drivers. Please note this schedule may change due to weather or other unexpected conditions.
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. 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 and is expected to finish in late 2022.
