The Wekiva Parkway (SR 429) is a $1.6B project that connects to SR 417, completing the beltway around Central Florida, while helping to protect the natural resources surrounding the Wekiva River. The 25-mile tolled expressway provides travel alternatives and relieve US 441, SR 46 and other area roads of traffic congestion resulting from growth and travel between Orange, Lake and Seminole Counties. This $56.2M phase of the project includes two adjacent precast, post-tensioned concrete U-beams spanning over a connector road. Each bridge has a total length of 469’ (137’, 195’, and 137’). The bridge was erected segment-by-segment using ground-based cranes with prefabricated shoring towers for temporary support at beam ends.
FINLEY provided construction engineering including construction analysis, erection manual, geometry control manual, mass concrete plan, temporary works, erection elevation, on-site-review and technical support during construction.
