Overview

The Wekiva Section 6 consists of nearly six miles of limited access toll road that will be largely elevated along the existing SR 46 corridor. This project includes 18 bridges in total: three segmental, six conventional, and nine wildlife crossings. The segmental bridges are cast-in-place segmental box bridges over the Wekiva River. This project also includes a parallel service road to accommodate local traffic, three wildlife crossing bridges (to allow animals to pass safely between the Seminole State Forest and Rock Springs Run State Reserve), and converting portions of county roads into local roadways. Superior Construction is also responsible for new pavement construction; widening, milling and resurfacing; drainage system improvements; bridge construction; intelligent transportation system (ITS); signing and pavement markings; utility coordination; tolling infrastructure; landscape concept development; and extensive stakeholder coordination.
