Data updated to april 2021
The project foresees the design and construction of a section of the Wekiva Parkway in Seminole County north of Orlando.
Lane is building Section 8 of the project, 2.63 miles of a limited access toll road from Orange Boulevard to east of Rinehart Road, including the new Wekiva Parkway interchange at I-4 that will connect with SR 417. The project is part of the 25-mile tolled Wekiva Parkway that will provide travel alternatives and relieve other area roads of traffic congestion between the counties of Orange, Lake, and Seminole.
It has been recognized as being environmentally sustainable because it aims to protect the wildlife that the parkway will encroach upon by creating 3,400 acres of conservation land, numerous wildlife bridges, and elevated roadways to reduce accidents between vehicles and wildlife.
