Section 7A: S.R. 46 Crane Move Requires Overnight Lane Closure

July 24, 2019

Sanford, Fla. - Crews are scheduled overnight Thursday, July 25, to conduct lane closures on State Road (S.R.) 46 to move a crane from Longwood-Markham Road to Glade View Drive as part of building the Wekiva Parkway. S.R. 46 traffic intermittently will alternate through one lane for a few hours beginning at 1 a.m. to allow crews to safely move the crane along this 1.8 mile stretch.


Flaggers will direct traffic. Emergency vehicle traffic will be maintained. 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.


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.
