State Road 46 Shoulder Closures For Bridge Work As Part Of Building Wekiva Parkway

November, 2018

SORRENTO _ Crews are scheduled Wednesday and Thursday nights, November 14 and 15, to close the shoulder along eastbound State Road (S.R.) 46 from Wekiva River Road to the Wekiva River bridge. The shoulder closures scheduled from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. will allow crews to erect bridge beams.

Electronic message boards have been posted to alert drivers and flaggers will direct traffic.  Please be advised weather or other unforeseen circumstances could delay or prolong work.

Wekiva Parkway Section 6 began construction on October 17, 2017. The six miles of elevated expressway will extend along the S.R. 46 corridor from the S.R. 429 interchange east of Camp Challenge Road to near Longwood-Markham Road. The project includes a non-tolled, local service road, a much higher bridge over the Wekiva River, and several wildlife bridges to allow animals to pass safely between the Seminole State Forest, Rock Springs Run State Reserve and Lower Wekiva River Preserve.

 

A multi-use trail with scenic overlooks at the wildlife bridges will be included along the service road on this section. Work will include connector roads between remaining sections of C.R. 46A and S.R. 46 to maintain private property access. Work is scheduled to finish in 2022.
