Wekiva Parkway (SR 429), Section 6
Section 6 of the Wekiva Parkway is a four-lane divided (expandable to six-lane divided by widening in the median), limited-access toll facility, from west of Old McDonald Road to east of Osprey Hammock Trail. The project includes construction of a two-lane service road paralleling Wekiva Parkway for the entire length. This two-lane service roadway includes intersections at Tree Frog Court and Wekiva River Road. Construction of two ramps connecting SR 46 with the new four-lane limite daccess facility is also included.
Portions of CR 46A and SR 46 were reconfigured to serve as local access roads through the construction of cul-de-sacs and access drives and a connector roadway was constructed between SR 46 and CR 46A located north of Wekiva Parkway. There are a total of nine cul-de-sacs constructed, including two along CR 46A intended to create a wildlife corridor north of Wekiva Parkway. A twelve-foot wide asphalt multi-use trail will be located adjacent to the service roadway for the entire length of the project.
This project includes the Wekiva River Crossing, which is designated as a Federal Wild and Scenic River. Throughout the preliminary design process, extensive coordination was performed with local agencies/stakeholders and the National Park Service to achieve approval in accordance with the National Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, Section 7(a). All requirements of the approved 7(a) document shall be followed and met by the Design-Build Team.
