Sections 3A & 3B: S.R. 46 Widening Requires Pinecrest Road Closure, Detour

March 8, 2019

Mount Dora, Fla. - Crews are scheduled on Monday, March 11, to close Pinecrest Road at State Road (S.R.) 46 for approximately two months as part of building the Wekiva Parkway (S.R. 429). The temporary closure will allow crews to widen the westbound lanes of S.R. 46 west of U.S. 441. Access to Pinecrest Road from S.R. 46 will be via the adjacent side street, Groveland Road.


Electronic message boards are in place. Please note this schedule may change due to weather or other unexpected conditions.


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.
