Detour of General Hutchison Parkway in Longwood, Seminole County
Motorists that regularly travel General Hutchison Parkway are advised of the extended closure of the road from U.S. 17/92 to east of Big Tree Park.
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:
· U.S. 17/92 to westbound Ronald Reagan Boulevard or
· U.S. 17/92 to westbound State Road (S.R.) 434 to northbound Ronald
Unforeseen utility work, revisions to plans for retaining walls and some design modifications in this area of work caused delays to opening General Hutchison Parkway.
General Hutchison Parkway is anticipated to reopen by early December 2019 pending weather and other unforeseen circumstances.
To ensure your safety and the safety of others, please use extra caution when driving through construction work zones.
