Wekiva Parkway Section 206 (Contract 429-206) 

Wekiva Parkway (SR 429) was a $1.6 billion design project for the greater metropolitan Orlando area. Through phased construction and collaborative efforts between the Florida Department of Transportation, Central Florida Expressway Authority and Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise the estimated 7-year project completes the Orlando-area’s missing northwestern beltway link. The freeway currently ends at US 441 and is planned to connect to SR 417 by following along the Lake County/Orange County line.

DRMP was responsible for traffic engineering for this new alignment of 1.7-miles of 6-lane limited access roadway from the Lake County/Orange County Line to east of Round Lake Road. Services provided included signalization, signing and pavement markings and lighting. The project included the design of the proposed intersection of the SR 453 terminus at SR 46 just east of Round Lake Road.

The project allowed the beltway to extend into Lake County and provided a connection to SR 46 and US 441. The lighting, signalization and signing and pavement marking designs contributed to the efficient traffic flow by increasing driver awareness and safety.
