S.R. 46 Pipe Crossing Repairs Require Road Closure & Detour

April 15, 2019

 

Mount Dora, Fla. - Crews are scheduled overnight Thursday, Apr. 18, to close State Road (S.R.) 46 between Round Lake Road and Sabastian Street. Traffic in both directions will be detoured using Round Lake Road, Wolf Branch Road and U.S. 441 from 8:30 p.m. to 6 a.m. to allow crews to repair  pipe crossings.

 

S.R. 46 between Round Lake Road and Sabastian Street will be open to local traffic only. Emergency vehicle access will be maintained. Electronic message boards are in place and law enforcement officers will be on site to help direct drivers. Please note this schedule may change due to weather or other unexpected conditions.

 

This activity is part of Wekiva Parkway Sections 3A & 3B, which began in October of 2017.  Work is scheduled to finish in spring of 2020. This 3-mile stretch of non-tolled road improvements includes widening S.R. 46 and U.S. 441 to six lanes, sidewalks and other pedestrian improvements, and building a flyover ramp for the heavy traffic that will be trying to get to the parkway.

 

For questions and concerns please contact Mary Brooks, Public Information Officer at 407-694-5505 or via email at info@wekivaparkway.com. Please visit www.wekivaparkway.com for project information, and follow the project on Facebook and Twitter for real-time updates.

 

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.
