SANFORD _ Crews are scheduled nightly March 3-4 to remove and replace the traffic signal on State Road (S.R.) 46 at Longwood-Markham Road as part of building the Wekiva Parkway (S.R. 429). The work, scheduled from 8 p.m. - 6 a.m., will allow crews to deactivate the existing signal and install a temporary one.
Law enforcement will direct traffic at the intersection during this operation. Please note this schedule may change due to weather or other unexpected conditions.
Project engineers will monitor the new, temporary traffic signal and are prepared to make additional adjustments based on traffic patterns, if necessary.
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.
