State Road 46

Improvements to this corridor are dependent on the Wekiva Parkway project. Upon completion of the PD&E study, which includes both the beltway and an improved SR 46 connection from the Wekiva Parkway to US 441 in Mount Dora, the necessary improvements for SR 46 are being defined in 2012 as the MPO will amend the Long Range Transportation Plan to show cost-feasibility of each segment. The Wekiva Parkway project should result in a four-to-six-lane arterial facility from US 441 in Mount Dora to new SR 429 (Wekiva Parkway). The SR 46 designation would be co-designated with SR 429 to a point at an interchange with the new alignment of CR 46A, at which point SR 46 would parallel SR 429 as a toll-free two-lane service road into Seminole County. A portion of the existing SR 46 two-lane facility in the communities of Sorrento and Mount Plymouth would be turned over to Lake County for maintenance. Design-build for the first segment of the project is to begin Fall 2012.
