FDOT Section 5 Pre-Construction Public Meeting, Tuesday, May 23

May 2017

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is holding a public information meeting about the Wekiva Parkway Section 5 Construction Project in Lake County. The public meeting is being held to review the construction plans and schedule.  

Section 5 entails removing about a mile of County Road (C.R.) 46A out of the Seminole State Forest to reduce collisions between vehicles and wildlife. The project involves realigning C.R. 46A for 2.5 miles from north of Arundel Way to connect to State Road (S.R.) 429 east of Camp Challenge Road. Work will include making a new signalized, T-intersection between the realigned C.R. 46A and S.R. 46. The project also includes road widening, installing medians, and building a multi-use trail along part of S.R. 46.

The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, May 23, 2017 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Camp Challenge located at 31600 Camp Challenge Road in Sorrento, Florida. The meeting is an informal open house where plans are available for review and project staff is available to address questions.
