Sections of SR 46 Not Decommissioned as Originally Proposed?
« on: January 07, 2022, 06:28:37 PM »

Concerning SR 46 from Mount Dora to I-4: Previously, it was stated on this forum and/ or on AA Roads.com that SR 46 was to be decommissioned east of SR 453. The overhead sign on SR 453 at SR 46 suggests this, given that there is no SR 46 shield for the sign pointing east from this intersection. However, the ground-mount signage suggests otherwise. There is an "EAST SR 46" reassurance assembly just east of SR 453, as well as other SR 46 signage east of this intersection. What's up with this? Did FDOT change their mind? Was the information that the decommissioning was to happen false to begin with?

There have been delays on the project, but the plan is still to decommission the segment of SR 46 between SR 453 and SR 429.

I don't know, but apparently there's a (temporary?) SR 46A: https://fdotewp1.dot.state.fl.us/slogis/blank.aspx?docId=107741

There appears to be a planned frontage road with bike lanes being built. So I assume that it will be a way to not pay the toll if you don’t want to.  Whether county or state maintained, still a shunpike route will be there from what I figure.

I'm guessing FDOT is waiting until the expressway is completed first, because that would be a smart move on their part.
