Widening on US 17/92 in Seminole County near City of Longwood [240196-1] View Project
  • Monday, March 19th, 2018 to Sunday, April 28th, 2019

    Detour of General Hutchison Parkway in Longwood Seminole County

    Motorists that travel General Hutchison Parkway are advised of a nearly one-year closure of the road from U.S. 17/92 to east of Big Tree Park.

    The closure of General Hutchison Parkway is necessary for construction crews to safely raise the road, construct the southbound phase of the bridge over Soldiers Creek and widen southbound U.S. 17/92 from Bill Ray Nissan to Shepard Road.    During the closure, General Hutchison Parkway may be accessed by one of two detours: U.S. 17/92 to westbound Ronald Reagan Boulevard or U.S. 17/92 to westbound State Road (S.R.) 434 to northbound Ronald Reagan Boulevard   

    Additionally, motorists should be aware of a temporary traffic shift in both directions along U.S. 17/92. Traffic will be temporarily shifted onto the newly constructed roadway from Shepard Road to approximately one-half mile south of the S.R. 419 intersection.

    To ensure your safety and the safety of others, please use extra caution when driving through construction work zones.

Widening on SR 46 in Seminole County near City of Sanford [240216-2] View Project
  • Tuesday, February 19th, 2019 to Thursday, February 21st, 2019

    Sanford Motorists will encounter a new configuration on State Road (S.R.) 46 this week. Instead of using the detour road, traffic will be moved to the mainline (S.R.46), using the future westbound traffic lanes for both east and westbound traffic.

    Work to complete the traffic switch will take place tonight, Feb. 19, with the new pattern being in effect on the morning of Feb. 21. Please see attached map.

    The work is part of the Florida Department of Transportation’s (FDOT) project to widen S.R. 46 to a four-lane roadway from Mellonville Avenue to S.R. 415 in Seminole County. Plans includes two 11-foot travel lanes and one 6-foot bicycle lane in each direction.

    Please note schedules may change due to weather or other circumstances. Electronic message boards and other signage will be used to safely direct motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists around the work areas. Drivers are asked to pay attention and use caution when traveling through a construction zone.
