The project is to design 5.5 miles of limited access toll road largely along the existing State Road 46 corridor from west of Old MacDonald Road to east of Wekiva Park Road. The project will include designing: an additional non-tolled, service road for local travel; a new, higher-profile bridge that is aesthetically pleasing over the Wekiva River; and three 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 will be built along this section. The wildlife bridges and new bridge over the Wekiva River will provide 7,800 feet of safe passage underneath for wildlife, compared to the 79 feet provided by the current two wildlife tunnels along S.R. 46. Work will include removing portions of S.R. 46 and building connector roads, drainage, signing and pavement markings, utilities and other roadway features.
