Daniel Webster Western Beltway

State Road 429 serves western reaches of the Orlando metropolitan area between Interstate 4 near Walt Disney World and U.S. 441 (Orange Blossom Trail) outside Apopka. The initial stretch of Daniel Webster Western Beltway opened between SR 50 at Ocoee and U.S. 441 at Apopka in 2000. A four-mile stretch extended the toll road south of Winter Garden to County Road 435 in 2002. The Central Florida Expressway (CFX) portion of SR 429 was completed in December 2005, when SR 429 opened southward to U.S. 192 on the Osceola County line.

Florida's Turnpike Enterprise constructed and maintains the Southwest Connector segment of SR 429 in Osceola County. This portion runs south to a tri-level stack interchange with Interstate 4. It opened to traffic on December 8, 2006.

Construction began in Winter 2007 on the John Land Apopka Expressway, a toll road extending SR 414 west from U.S. 441 at Lockhart to the Western Beltway at Apopka. This portion opened on March 15, 2009, with a temporary end at SR 429 and County Road 437A (Ocoee Apopka Road). Associated construction through 2012 realigned the Western Beltway west onto a new alignment and interchange with the remainder of the John Land Apopka Expressway north to Orange Blossom Trail (OBT). This included the removal of a portion of old SR 429, including the diamond interchange with Ocoee Apopka Road.

SR 414 and 429 combine and curve four miles northward from their interchange west of CR 437A to a SPUI with a connector road linking OBT and CR 437. This section, opened on January 19, 2013, completed the John Land Apopka Expressway bypass of U.S. 441.

Construction kicking off in 2015 extends SR 429 north along the Wekiva Parkway to Kelly Park Road near the Lake County line. Work follows in 2017 on the eastern turn to SR 46, including a high-speed interchange with the Mt. Dora connector (SR 453).

The Wekiva Parkway will be constructed in several phases commencing between 2015 and 2021. The 25-mile toll road will overtake the SR 46 corridor east from Lake County to Sanford, with the final angling southeast directly to the I-4 and SR 417 (Seminole Expressway) interchange.
