As the water level of the St. Johns River continues to recede to safer levels, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has opened one lane of two-way traffic on State Road (S.R.) 46 in Seminole County to local traffic only. Flaggers will be present to direct traffic in both directions.
No heavy trucks – semitrucks, construction trucks, etc. – are allowed at this time. As the water level continues to recede, traffic on two lanes will be restored as soon as possible. The Department will continue to monitor the area around S.R. 46 and make adjustments as needed.
The recent flooding along S.R. 46 in Seminole County near Volusia and Brevard counties was a result of Hurricane Ian. A time estimate for reopening both lanes is currently unknown and updates will be provided as we have them available.
Motorists are reminded to drive safe, use caution, and remain patient as they travel through the roadway. Check FL511.com for updates to road and bridge closures.
FDOT continues to work with other agencies, local partners, and the community to respond, rebuild, and recover from Hurricane Ian as safely and quickly as possible.
Media inquiries should be directed to the FDOT District Five Communications Office at [email protected] or by phone at 386-943-5593.
Please remember to follow posted signage, avoid distractions, and drive cautiously.
