Mount Dora, Fla. - Crews are scheduled on Wednesday, Aug. 21, to reopen Pinecrest Road at State Road (S.R.) 46 as part of building the Wekiva Parkway (S.R. 429). The road was closed to allow crews to rebuild the side street entrance as part of widening the westbound lanes of S.R. 46 in this location.
Crews subsequently are scheduled to close Groveland Road at S.R. 46 to rebuild that side street entrance. Access to Groveland Road from S.R. 46 will be via the adjacent side street, Pinecrest Road.
This activity is part of Wekiva Parkway Sections 3A & 3B, which began in October of 2017. Work is scheduled to finish in spring of 2020. This 3-mile stretch of non-tolled road improvements includes widening S.R. 46 and U.S. 441 to six lanes, sidewalks and other pedestrian improvements, and building a flyover ramp for the heavy traffic that will be trying to get to the parkway.
