The last section of the 417 , beltway around Orlando is under construction and once completed will allow travelers to loop the Orlando area.
The Wekiva Parkway (SR 429) would connect to SR 417, completing the beltway around Central Florida, while helping to protect the natural resources surrounding the Wekiva River. This estimated $1.6 billion project includes $500 million of non-toll road improvements including:
- Widening seven (7) miles of SR 46 in Lake and Seminole Counties
- Rebuilding the US 441/SR 46 interchange in Mount Dora
- Shifting the CR 46A connection to SR 46 so wildlife can move more safely between habitats
- Providing non-tolled, one-lane service roads parallel to the parkway in part of east Lake and Seminole Counties
Building a 10-mile, multi-use trail along portions of the parkway in east Lake and Seminole counties
