On behalf of the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and the Central Florida Expressway Authority (CFX), thank you for your interest in the Wekiva Parkway design and construction projects. The Wekiva Parkway (State Road (S.R.) 429) is a cooperative effort between these agencies and the Florida's Turnpike Enterprise.


The Wekiva Parkway (S.R. 429) connects to Interstate 4 and S.R. 417, completing the beltway around Central Florida, while helping to protect the natural resources surrounding the Wekiva River. This estimated $1.6 billion project included $500 million of non-toll road improvements:


  • Widened seven (7) miles of S.R. 46 in Lake and Seminole Counties
  • Rebuilt the U.S. 441/S.R. 46 interchange in Mount Dora
  • Shifted the County Road (C.R.) 46A connection to S.R. 46 so wildlife can move more safely between habitats
  • Provided non-tolled, one-lane service roads parallel to the parkway in part of east Lake and Seminole Counties 
  • Built a 10-mile, multi-use trail along portions of the parkway in east Lake and Seminole counties


The final portion of the Wekiva Parkway opened on January 27, 2024, thereby competing Central Florida's beltway. Work to make finishing touches on the parkway will continue and may require lane and ramp closures.

The 25-mile tolled expressway provides travel alternatives and relieves U.S. 441, S.R. 46 and other area roads of traffic congestion resulting from growth and travel between Orange, Lake and Seminole Counties.


Authorized in 2004 by the Wekiva Parkway and Protection Act (Chapter 369, Part III, F.S.), this expressway has been heralded as a shining example for transportation planning through an environmentally sensitive area. Development of the Wekiva Parkway has included setting aside more than 3,400 acres of land for conservation. The parkway also includes 1.5 miles of wildlife bridges, is largely elevated to reduce collisions between vehicles and wildlife and wildlife jumpouts and other natural protections.
