Section 5: C.R. 46A Paving Requires Single Lane Closures, Detour at Red Tail Boulevard

July 23, 2019

Sorrento, Fla. – Crews today and Wednesday, July 23 and 24, are scheduled to alternate traffic through one lane on County Road (C.R.) 46A from Arundel Way to near Red Tail Boulevard as part of building the Wekiva Parkway.  The flagging operations scheduled through midnight are needed to allow crews to pave the new alignment of C.R. 46A.


Access to the Red Tail community has been detoured through a temporary access road to allow crews to build the new entrance connection to the new C.R. 46A. Electronic message boards have been posted. Please be advised that weather or other unexpected conditions could delay or prolong work.


Wekiva Parkway Section 5, one of the Florida Department of Transportation’s non-tolled road projects, on June 5, 2017 began relocating part of 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.


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.
