Nighttime Lane Closures Scheduled on Longwood-Markham Road

February 7, 2019


SANFORD _ Crews are scheduled the nights of February 10-15 to intermittently conduct single lane closures on Longwood-Markham Road at State Road (S.R.) 46 as part of building the Wekiva Parkway (S.R. 429). The lane closures, scheduled from 6 p.m. - 6 a.m., will allow crews to install utility pipe.


Flaggers will assist in directing traffic. Electronic message boards will be posted to alert drivers. Please note this schedule may change due to weather or other unexpected conditions.


The work is being conducted as part of building Wekiva Parkway Section 7A. Work on this stretch along S.R. 46 from Longwood-Markham Road to Orange Boulevard began April 1, 2018, and is scheduled to finish in 2022.


Motorists should be alert for large construction equipment and vehicles moving in and out of the work zone. Drivers should obey the speed limit, all construction signs and safety devices for the safety of the public and work crews. FDOT reminds all road users to pay attention, drive with care and always buckle up.
