State Road 582 (SR 582) is an east–west state highway in Hillsborough County, Florida, United States. The current alignment of SR 582 is Fowler Avenue just south of the northern city limit of Tampa and Temple Terrace from Florida Avenue (U.S. Route 41 Business (US 41 Bus.)/SR 685) to US 301 (SR 41). It is the primary road to access of University of South Florida (50th Street, the former State Road 582B and now County Road 582B, forms the eastern boundary of the campus; Fletcher Avenue, the former State Road 582A that was once a segment of SR 579, forms the northern boundary).

The road is named for Tampa civil rights activist Cody Fowler's mother Maude Fowler.
