Section 8: Lane Closures Scheduled on International Parkway


Sanford, Fla. – Crews are scheduled Thursday, Dec. 19, from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m., to close the right lanes of International Parkway northbound and southbound near State Road (S.R.) 417 as part of building the Wekiva Parkway (S.R. 429). The lane closures are required so crews can inspect the existing drainage system.


Electronic message boards have been posted. 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 (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.
