Heads up! Crews are scheduled for three days to close State Road (S.R.) 46 at U.S. 441 at night to work on the new flyover bridge over the travel lanes. On June 20, June 26, and June 27 traffic will be detoured via Wolf Branch Road and Round Lake Road. The work will occur only at night from 8:30 p.m. to 6 a.m.
During the detour times S.R.. 46 between Round Lake Road and U.S. 441 will be open to local traffic only. Electronic message boards are in place and law enforcement officers will be on site to help direct drivers. This schedule may change due to weather or other unexpected conditions.
This activity is part of Wekiva Parkway construction of 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.
