Contract Type: Design-Build
Contract Amount: $24 million
Location: Lake and Orange County, Florida
Client: FDOT District Five
Design Partner: Stantec (Prime)

 

The first of eight projects that make up the Wekiva Parkway, Section 4A/4B begins the work needed to complete the Western Beltway around metropolitan Orlando, providing for a higher capacity and safer east-west travel facility in Orange, Lake and Seminole Counties.

Section 4A/4B of the Parkway (SR 429) extends from north of CR 435 to south of SR 46, a distance of 2.773 miles. Among the main features of this project are two retention ponds, dual floodplain bridges, a mainline toll plaza, and an interchange with the SR 46 Connector Road. 3D modeling and heavy equipment with live cut/fill indications in the cab allowed for the placement of nearly one million cubic yards of embankment without a single survey stake.
