Mount Dora, Fla. - Crews are scheduled on Sunday, Nov. 17, through Tuesday, Nov. 19, from 8:30 p.m. – 6:30 a.m., to conduct lane closures at the U.S. 441 and State Road (S.R.) 46 intersection in Mount Dora. The lane closures are needed to remove material overhanging traffic that was used to construct the new flyover bridge.
Additionally, crews on Monday, Nov. 18, through Friday, Nov. 22, from 7 a.m. – 5 p.m., will conduct lane closures on the right lane of U.S. 441 southbound. The lane closures are needed for installation of drainage pipe and so that trucks may safely enter and exit the work zone.
Please note this schedule may change due to weather or other unexpected conditions.
This activity is part of Wekiva Parkway Sections 3A and 3B, which began in October 2017. Work is scheduled to finish in summer 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.
FDOT urges all drivers to stay alert and use caution while driving through or near construction zones. When driving, walking, or bicycling, remember to pay attention and follow the rules. Safety doesn’t happen by accident.
