Overview & History
State Road 429 (Daniel Webster Western Beltway) extends nearly 23 miles from U.S. Highway 441 in Apopka south to Interstate 4 in Osceola County, providing West Orange and Osceola counties with an alternate north-south route to heavily traveled Interstate-4.
The State Road 429 also greatly enhances access to the Florida’s Turnpike and area attractions.
The expressway features CFX’s first “open-road tolling” system for travelers using E-PASS or other accepted electronic transponders. Under the new design, E-PASS customers pay tolls automatically while traveling under gantries on the expressway. Customers who prefer to pay with cash must stop at conventional tollbooths.
State Road 429 becomes the Wekiva Parkway when it crosses U.S. Highway 441 in Apopka. The final link in the Central Florida Beltway, the parkway is being built in stages by CFX and Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise, a division of the Florida Department of Transportation. The parkway is scheduled to be completed in 2023.
CFX leverages emerging technology and expert planning to ensure that drivers enjoy safe, efficient travel whether coming, going or just passing through the region. While Central Florida expressways share this legacy of connection, each has its own unique history.
