September 29, 2019


Sanford, Fla. - Crews are scheduled Monday, Sept. 30, through Saturday, Oct. 5, from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., to conduct intermittent lane closures on State Road (S.R.) 46 between Bella Foresta Place and Lake Markham Road as part of building the Wekiva Parkway (S.R. 429). Traffic will alternate intermittently through one lane for convoys of large dump trucks to cross the road for pond and embankment earthwork.


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.
