The main section of County Road 46A follows H.E. Thomas, Jr. Parkway and 25th Street at Sanford in Seminole County. The second segment of County Road 46A is posted in eastern Lake County. Traveling partly through Seminole State Forest, the 5.59 mile long highway branches southeast from SR 44 to SR 46 near Walling. Construction on Sections 5 and 6 for Wekiva Parkway (SR 429) include realigning CR 46A southward 2.5 miles from near Arundel Way to connect with the toll road at SR 46. Work on Section 5 got underway on June 5, 2017 and runs through summer 2019. Started on October 18, 2017, Section 6 work through spring 2021 includes removing the CR 46A roadway through Seminole State Forest. Short segments of the old alignment will be repurposed as service roads.
