Widening on US 17/92 in Seminole County near City of Longwood [240196-1] View Project

    Nearly One-Year Detour of General Hutchison Parkway in Longwood

    Seminole County – Motorists that travel General Hutchison Parkway are advised of a nearly one-year closure of the road from U.S. 17/92 to east of Big Tree Park beginning tomorrow, and a temporary traffic shift along U.S. 17/92.


    The closure of General Hutchison Parkway is necessary for construction crews to safely raise the road, construct the southbound phase of the bridge over Soldiers Creek and widen southbound U.S. 17/92 from Bill Ray Nissan to Shepard Road. 


    During the closure, General Hutchison Parkway may be accessed by one of two detours (see attached map):

    ·       U.S. 17/92 to westbound Ronald Reagan Boulevard, or

    ·       U.S. 17/92 to westbound State Road (S.R.) 434 to northbound Ronald Reagan Boulevard 


    Additionally, motorists should be aware of a temporary traffic shift in both directions along U.S. 17/92. Traffic will be temporarily shifted onto the newly constructed roadway from Shepard Road to approximately one-half mile south of the S.R. 419 intersection (see attached map).


    Electronic message boards have been installed to inform motorists about the road closure and traffic shift, and detour signs will also help direct traffic.


    The work is part of FDOT’s project to widen U.S. 17/92 from four to six lanes from Shepard Road to Lake Mary Boulevard. Please note that this schedule may change due to weather or other unexpected conditions.


    Construction updates are available on FDOT’s Central Florida website, www.cflroads.com. For media inquiries, please contact the District Five Communications Office at 386-943-5479 or d5-pio@dot.state.fl.us.  


    To ensure your safety and the safety of others, please use extra caution when driving through construction work zones.
