It crosses the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway as well as the Braden River, Lake Manatee, and the Myakka River. East of Avon Park, a bi-county extension runs northeast into Polk County which runs through Lake Wales Ridge State Forest and terminates at the Avon Park US Air Force Base. It is designated as the Florida Cracker Trail from Bradenton to the Hardee County Line.[2]

Anna Maria Island Bridge

The Anna Maria Island Bridge is a double-leaf bascule bridge that crosses the Sarasota Bay, connecting the barrier islands of Holmes Beach to the mainland of Palma Sola, Florida. Built in 1957, the bridge carries Manatee Avenue, part of SR 64, and it also replaced the old swing bridge built in 1921.[3][4]

The bridge was designated by the 1965 Legislature of Florida.

County Road 64 is a bi-county extension of SR 64 in Highlands and Polk Counties. It begins at SR 17 in Avon Park as East Main Street, which is part of SR 17 from the eastern terminus of SR 64. From there it runs straight west and east until the intersection with East Avon Pines Road, where it branches to the northeast, a position it maintains throughout the rest of the county. After crossing a bridge over Bonnet Creek, it crosses the Polk County Line[5] thus entering part of the Lake Wales Ridge State Forest, before curving east as it approaches a bridge over Arbuckle Creek, and terminating at the Avon Park Air Force Range.[6]

By the time it reaches the intersection of CR 35B, it runs directly west and east like its parent route and enters the City of Wauchula. Here, the road's only major intersection is CR 35A before it finally terminates at the intersection of US 17 and SR 636.[7]
