Sorrento, Fla. – On Saturday, Sept. 7, and Sunday, Sept. 8, from 8 a.m. – 7 p.m., crews will intermittently close eastbound and westbound lanes of State Road (S.R.) 46 between the flashing signal at Sorrento Avenue and S.R. 429. Traffic in both directions will be flagged through one lane so crews can conduct paving.
This work is part of Wekiva Parkway Section 5, which began construction on June 5, 2017. The project included relocating part of County Road (C.R.) 46A out of the Seminole State Forest. This $9.9 million project is intended to improve connectivity between wildlife habitats and reduce the risk of collisions between vehicles and wildlife.
The project realigns C.R. 46A for 2.5 miles from north of Arundel Way to S.R. 429 east of Camp Challenge Road. Work has included building a multi-use trail along the S.R. 46 portion of the project, and a new signalized, T-intersection at C.R. 46A and S.R. 46. Work is expected to finish by late 2019.
