Preconstruction Open House

Project includes a bridge and extends from Lake County into Seminole County

 

Lake and Seminole counties - The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is holding a public information meeting regarding the Wekiva Parkway Section 6 Design-Build Project in Lake and Seminole counties. The public meeting is being held to review the construction plans and construction schedule prior to the project beginning. Work is scheduled to start in October. The design-build team has proposed innovations and other project changes since the last public meeting was held.

 

This project will build nearly six (6) miles of limited access toll road largely along the existing State Road (S.R.) 46 corridor from S.R. 429 to just west of Longwood-Markham Road. There will also be a non-tolled, service road for local travel, a new bridge over the Wekiva River, as well as several wildlife bridges to allow animals to pass safely between the Seminole State Forest and Rock Springs Run State Reserve. A multi-use trail will be included along this section. Work will include bridges, connector roads between remaining sections of County Road (C.R.) 46A and S.R. 46,  as well as roadway widening, drainage, lighting, and utilities.

The meeting is scheduled for Thursday, September 28, 2017, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Camp Challenge, located at 31600 Camp Challenge Road, Sorrento, Florida 32776. The meeting is an open house where plans will be available for review and project staff will be available to address questions.
