The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is holding a pre-construction public information meeting about the Wekiva Parkway Section 7A project in Seminole County. The public meeting is being held to review the construction plans and schedule.
This project is funded for construction of 3.5 miles of limited access toll road along the existing State Road (S.R.) 46 corridor from a half mile east of Wekiva Park Drive to Orange Boulevard. The project also includes parallel, non-tolled, one-lane frontage roads for local travel. Roundabouts are planned as safety enhancements at the intersections under the parkway. Lighting is planned under the bridges and on frontage road approaches to the roundabouts. Work is scheduled to begin in February or March of 2018.
The meeting is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 22 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Lakeside Fellowship United Methodist Church’s new location: 121 N. Henderson Lane in Sanford. The meeting is an informal open house where plans are available for review and project staff is available to address questions.
