SANFORD _ The Florida Department of Transportation's Wekiva Parkway Section 7A pre-construction public meeting on Feb. 22 drew 184 people. This project involves building the elevated parkway along the State Road (S.R.) 46 corridor from near Longwood-Markham Road to Orange Boulevard, as well as parallel, non-tolled service roads for local trips.
Attendees at the meeting at Lakeside United Methodist Church, 121 N. Henderson Lane in Sanford, submitted eight comment forms and 10 public involvement performance surveys. Comment topics included how to access the parkway, fencing, landscaping, concerns about road closures, noise and lane transitions at State Road (S.R.) 46 and International Parkway.
Among the officials attending were Jean Jreij and Matt Hassan of Seminole County Public Works, Tony Matthews of Seminole County Planning, and a number of Seminole County Fire and Rescue personnel.
Section 7A is scheduled to begin construction in April - May, and finish in spring-summer of 2022.
