ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – Plans to extend State Road 429 in Orange County are set to take another big step forward on Monday.

Workers are set to start construction on another stretch of the highway near Plymouth Sorrento Road in Apopka.

State Road 429 will eventually run from Interstate 4 near Disney to Seminole County, completing the long-awaited western beltway around Orlando.

The project is still several years away from completion.
