Sections 3A & 3B S.R. 46 Paving Requires Lane Closures

April 8, 2019

Mount Dora, Fla. - Crews are scheduled at night on Wednesday, Apr. 10, through Friday, Apr. 12, to intermittently close eastbound and westbound lanes of State Road (S.R.) 46 at Currin Boulevard (Southernaire community) as part of building the Wekiva Parkway (S.R. 429). The lane closures, which will take place each night from 9 p.m. to 6:30 a.m., will allow crews to rebuild the eastbound lanes of S.R. 46 west of U.S. 441.


Electronic message boards are in place. Flaggers will direct traffic. 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.


For questions and concerns please contact Mary Brooks, Public Information Officer at 407-694-5505 or via email at Please visit for project information, and follow the project on Facebook and Twitter for real-time updates.
