Sanford, Fla. – Crews are scheduled Sunday, Jan. 5, through Tuesday, Jan. 7, from 8:30 p.m. – 6 a.m., to conduct nightly lane closures on State Road (S.R.) 46 between North Center Road and Lake Markham Road as part of building the Wekiva Parkway (S.R. 429). The lane closures are required for paving tie-in connections to the future westbound service road.
Flaggers will direct traffic. Electronic message boards have been posted. Please note construction schedules may change due to weather or other circumstances.
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. The project is building 3.53 miles of limited access toll road largely along existing S.R. 46 and will include non-tolled service roads for local travel, slip ramps to enter and exit the Wekiva Parkway, and several bridges over side streets.
The Florida Department of Transportation 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.
