Mount Dora, Fla. - Crews are scheduled beginning on March 11 to close Natoma Boulevard at U.S. 441 for approximately two months as part of building the Wekiva Parkway (State Road (S.R.) 429). The closure will allow the contractor, GLF Construction, to widen the northbound lanes of U.S. 441 and build the connection to Natoma Boulevard.
During this operation, traffic will be detoured to the S.R. 46 and Sabastian Street entrance to the Summerbrooke community. Electronic message boards and detour signs have been posted alerting drivers to this closure. Please note this schedule may change due to weather or other unexpected conditions.
The work is part of Wekiva Parkway Sections 3A and 3B, which began construction on October 30, 2017. The non-tolled improvements include widening S.R. 46 to six lanes from U.S. 441 to Round Lake Road, and building a flyover bridge at U.S. 441. Work includes widening U.S. 441 to six lanes in the area, and installing sidewalks and other pedestrian facilities.
The non-tolled improvements are being made in anticipation of the heavy traffic expected to head to the parkway. Construction is scheduled to finish in spring of 2020.
