U.S. Highway 19 (US 19) runs about 262 miles (422 km) along Florida's west coast from an interchange with US 41 in Memphis, south of Tampa, and continues to the Georgia border north of Monticello.[2][3]

As is the case with all Florida roads with federal designations, the entirety of US 19 has a hidden Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) designation:

  • State Road 55 (SR 55) from the U.S. Highway's southern terminus at US 41 south of Terra Ceia to the junction with US 221/SR 55 north in Perry.
  • SR 30 from the junction with US 221/SR 55 in Perry for roughly one mile (1.6 km) to the junction with US 27 south (SR 20 east)/US 98 west (SR 30 west) via US 221 Truck.
  • SR 20 from the junction with US 27/US 98 in Perry cosigning with US 27 until the routes split in Capps.
  • State Road 57 (SR 57) from the US 27/SR 20 split in Capps to the Georgia state line north of Texas Hill.

US 19 remains independent of Interstate 75 (I-75), even as the routes converge in the Tampa Bay area. The route is cosigned with I-275 over the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, a cable-stayed bridge over the mouth of Tampa Bay, US 98 between the Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge and Perry, US 27 Alternate (US 27 Alt.) between Chiefland and Perry, and US 27 between and Perry and Capps.

Manatee County to Pinellas County

The Sunshine Skyway Bridge, carrying I-275/US 19 across Tampa Bay

The road begins at an interchange with US 41 in Manatee County and remains independent until the interchange with I-275 at exit 5, where it overlaps I-275 across the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, the terminus of which is at the intersection of I-275 and SR 682 at exit 17.

According to a Dateline NBC study, part of US 19 in Florida is the most dangerous road in the U.S. A Florida Highway Patrol test period beginning in 1998 and ending in 2003, as mandated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, showed the stretch of US 19 from Pasco to Pinellas county to average approximately 52 deaths a year, or 262 deaths in the five-year duration of the study. Of these deaths, 100 were pedestrian related making US 19 the #1 worst road to walk on in these two counties.[4] Multiple efforts to improve US 19 have been suggested to FDOT.

Within downtown St. Petersburg, US 19 crosses US 19 Alt., which used to serve as the southern terminus of US 19 Alt. until 2006. US 19 runs along 34th Street until just south of the interchange at SR 694 at Gandy and Park boulevards in Pinellas Park. This interchange was intended for the formerly proposed Gandy Freeway. In eastern Largo, SR 688 shares an interchange with the northern terminus of SR 693, a road that leads to St. Pete Beach and was once part of SR A19A. Immediately after this, the next interchange is at SR 686, the road to St. Pete–Clearwater International Airport. SR 60 is the site of the world's first Single-point urban interchange. Drew Street is north of the interchange, and for years has been a source of major accidents. By 2006, the freeway gap was filled between SR 60 and Sunset Point Road; however, the service roads terminate at a creek between Drew Street and Northeast Coachman Road, creating a traffic situation similar to that of the Oakdale Merge on Long Island, New York.

As of 2017, US 19 is built to freeway standards from just south of 49th Street North to just north of SR 580. The freeway has service roads along the length of the route and Texas U-turns at major interchanges.

Pasco County

US 19 in Hudson and Hudson Beach

When US 19 Alt. terminates at US 19 in Holiday across from a major trailer park, a de facto extension of the road serves as a brief multiplex with US 19 in Holiday which terminates a block north of the northern terminus of US 19 Alt. in Holiday at Mile Stretch Road (County Road 595, or CR 595). After the intersection with Moog Road, US 19 takes a slight curve to the northeast before intersecting with SR 54. Shortly after this, the road crosses CR 518 (Trouble Creek Road), then dips as it approaches the gateway to Gulf Harbors and curves straight north before reaching Gulf Boulevard. Downtown New Port Richey can be found roughly two miles (3.2 km) north of this point at Main Street which is the northern terminus of unmarked southern CR 595, although the terminus used to be at Grand Boulevard in Port Richey. The bridge over the Pithlachascotee River, which carries US 19 from New Port Richey to Port Richey was a two-lane drawbridge until 1965. An even older version of that bridge is now fishing pier owned by a boat rental dealership.[5]

Just as in Pinellas County, US 19 in Pasco County has been rated the most dangerous road in the U.S. Ridge Road (CR 524) is considered to be one of the most dangerous intersection of US 19. However instead of making any genuine effort to improve the intersection by building an interchange, local governments have allowed developers to add a Walmart and smaller stores in the vicinity of the intersection. The closest thing to an interchange that has been considered is an overpass strictly for left-turn lanes.[6]

North of Ridge Road, US 19 passes by the Gulf View Square mall as well as the Embassy Plaza and Embassy Crossing shopping centers on the opposite side of the mall. North of these two shopping centers, a marginal dirt road can be found on the east side of US 19 as far north as Fox Hollow Drive, while on the west side a paved road that may have been part of the old US 19 runs from the north end of the mall to Clemens Boulevard. After this, the road intersects CR 77 (Regency Park Drive) south of Jasmine Estates, which is only noticed because an 18-screen movie theater is located opposite from the terminus, before turning straight north again near the intersection with Hammock and Ranch roads. The next major intersection is SR 52 in Bayonet Point. The southwest corner of SR 52 is dominated by a flea market which was originally a racetrack.

After curving from north to northeast near the Old Dixie Highway in Hudson Beach, US 19 intersects with Hudson Avenue and Fivay Drive, the latter of which was formerly part of CR 1. The northern terminus of Little Road (CR 1) was built at the turn of the century further north. Between the former and current terminus of CR 1, US 19 is dotted with independent motels, one of which was plagued with so much flooding during the early 21st Century that it was torn down. Another marginal dirt road exists along the east side of this section. North of Little Road, US 19 curves straight north again.

Aripeka Road (CR 595) is located in one of the most rural sections of the county. Despite efforts to preserve some of the land in this section, a new gated community geared toward horse owners has sprung up north of Aripeka Road. US 19's journey through Pasco County ends at CR 578 (County Line Road) and Holiday Springs RV Resort across from the west end of CR 578.[7]

Hernando County

Tourist sign on US 19 just north of County Line Road (CR 578)

After the intersection at CR 578 (County Line Road), US 19 continues northbound as a six-lane highway with occasional frontage roads. Tourist Development Council signs at both borders boast of the county being part of Florida's Nature Coast. The southern half of US 19 serves as most of the western border of Spring Hill. Applegate Road near Wendy Drive is only a short distance from CR 574 (Spring Hill Drive) and CR 595 (Osowaw Boulevard) serve as the Gateways to Spring Hill and Hernando Beach, although southbound US 19 travelers can reach CR 595 from Tarpon Boulevard. Osowaw and Tarpon boulevards were once part of the Old Dixie Highway, which crossed over US 19 and back until shopping centers and a portion of Timber Pines were built along the road.

Evidence of postwar, pre-Disney efforts to attract tourists can be found in two dinosaur-shaped landmarks. The first is north of the Windward Village gated community, and the second is built around a local garage and former Sinclair gas station.[8] In between, there is another short former section of Old Dixie Highway north of Windward Village. Forest Oaks Boulevard is a street that runs past a local Hernando County Sheriff's station as it winds its way to Deltona Boulevard (CR 589). Berkley Manor Boulevard is the next intersection but strictly leads to another Deed Restricted Community in Spring Hill. On the opposite side of these two intersections is a shopping center in front of two other roads leading to gated communities.

US 19 leaves Spring Hill north of Northcliffe Boulevard and enters Weeki Wachee, "the City of Live Mermaids". Weeki Wachee Springs State Park, famous for the daily mermaid performances and the Buccaneer Bay waterpark is at the intersection of SR 50 (Cortez Boulevard). This coastal spur becomes CR 550 will travel out to Bayport (Bayport Park and boat ramp) and to Pine Island, the county's only Gulf water beach. A shopping center can be found diagonally across from the park. North of SR 50, US 19 is four-lanes wide and has had a limited number of median openings that contain left-turn lanes until 2014. Signs warn motorists that the region is a bear habitat. This is because much of what surrounds US 19 north of Hexam Road consists of the Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge. Even the intersection with CR 476 (Centralia Road) is barely notable without signs.

Citrus County

Across the Hernando–Citrus county line, US 19 continues its rural surroundings, but this time has a limited number of left-turn lanes in the center median. Recent development in the area may lead to the addition of such turn lanes. US 98 joins US 19 in Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge, where SR 700 ends. CR 480 also shares this intersection and overlaps US 98 before branching out on its own toward Floral City. The first developed neighborhood encountered along US 19/US 98 is Sugarmill Woods. After the western terminus of Cardinal Lane, the road passes by Howard's Flea Market then curves to the northwest. Within Homosassa Springs, the division temporarily ends after it overlaps CR 490. CR 490A terminates at the three-route concurrency with US 19/US 98/CR 490. Less than 0.5 miles (0.80 km) north of end of the CR 490 concurrency, the road becomes divided again. North of Homosassa Springs, US 19/US 98 serves as the location of a series of car dealerships, local garages, a Moose Lodge, churches, and the intersection of Ozello Trail (CR 494).

As the road approaches Crystal River Airport, it enters the city of Crystal River, since the airport serves as the unofficial southern border. At the intersection of CR 44W, US 19/US 98 becomes a six-lane divided boulevard. The division of this highway ends again, just south of the intersection of SR 44, where the road curves west as it approaches CR 495 (North Citrus Avenue). US 19/US 98 curves back north and becomes a divided highway once again as it approaches Crystal River Mall. Other former sections exist between Crystal River and Red Level, while the current US 19/US 98 passes by sparsely located hotels, bars, houses, cluster developments, and signs advertising locally-prepared peanuts. It also passes by the Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center just south of the Crystal River Nuclear Plant and then CR 488 in Red Level. A field where American Civil War reenactments are staged lies just north of the back entrance to a local quarry.

The Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway was the last section of US 19 that was two lanes wide in Citrus County. A new four-lane divided bridge was completed by FDOT in the early-2010s,[9] which was originally planned in conjunction with the proposed Suncoast Parkway extension to Red Level. A smaller four-lane bridge carries US 19/US 98 across the Withlacoochee River as it crosses the Citrus–Levy county line.

Levy County to Dixie County

Intersection of US 19 and CR 326, looking east along CR 326

US 19/US 98 crosses the Withlacoochee River and immediately enters Levy County and the city of Inglis, where it intersects with CR 40. West of US 19/US 98, CR 40 is named "Follow That Dream Boulevard" for the 1962 movie starring Elvis Presley. Shortly after this, the road intersects CR 40A. North of Inglis, US 19/US 98 runs along sparse residences, trailer parks, a Florida Sheriff's Youth Facility, the Gulf Hammock Wildlife Management Area and eventually the Goethe State Forest. Within the forest, the road crosses the Ten Mile Creek bridge before reaching an at-grade interchange with SR 121 and CR 336 in Lebanon Junction. From there, US 19/US 98 runs along an abandoned railroad line along the east side, while the median is widened and lined with the trees that existed before the road was ever built. This section also secretly overlaps CR 336. At the intersection of CR 326 in Gulf Hammock, an old locomotive and caboose are on display. Blinking signals exist over the intersection with SR 24 in Otter Creek, but the overlap with CR 336 leaves just before the signal.

US 27 Alt. joins US 19/US 98 in Chiefland where SR 500 ends. This intersection was transformed into a 90-degree intersection, which directly faces a local high school. Almost instantly, US 19/US 27 Alt./US 98 encounters the intersection of US 129.

US 19/US 27 Alt./US 98 makes a sharp left turn near the intersection of SR 26 in Fanning Springs, where it also crosses the Joe H. Anderson Sr. Bridge over the Suwannee River, thus entering Dixie County. It then follows the left bank of the Suwannee River and intersects the eastern terminus of CR 55A, and even contains a truck weight station in the median before reaching SR 349 in Old Town, which used to be US 129 Alt. The road starts making more of a northwest turn after this and shortly afterward encounters CR 351 in Cross City, then passes through Shamrock where the road crosses CR 358 twice. After the second crossing of CR 358, it begins to take an even more northerly direction before leaving Dixie County at the Steinhatchee River.

Taylor County to Jefferson County

US 19/US 27 crossing the Aucilla River, south of Lamont

Immediately after crossing the Steinhatchee River, US 19 enters Taylor County, where it intersects with SR 51 at Tennille. The rest of the way, US 19 passes through small unincorporated areas such as Salem, Carbur, Athena, and Pinland.

In Bucell Junction, US 19 gains the name Byron Butler Parkway as it intersects with SR 30 and SR 30A near Perry–Foley Airport. SR 30 secretly joins US 19 momentarily. Within the city limits of Perry, SR 55 veers to the right along US 221. SR 30 is the secret designation north of here. US 27 Alt. terminates at US 27, which replaces it as an overlapping U.S. Highway as US 98 heads west along SR 30. From this point, the secret designation is SR 20. It also briefly carries US 221 Truck until it reaches CR 359A (Wright Road).

In Eridu, the road intersects with CR 14. US 19/US 27 briefly enters Madison County where the name is changed to the Florida–Georgia Parkway, where it intersects with CR 150, then Jefferson County. The first major town in Jefferson County that the road enters is Lamont, where US 19/US 27 encounters SR 165, CR 257A, and CR 257B, as it begins to move in a more westerly direction.

Capps to the Georgia State Line

State Road 57

LocationCappsGeorgia state line, near Thomasville
Intersection of US 19 and US 90 in Monticello

US 27 leaves US 19 in Capps along with SR 20, on its way through Tallahassee. From this point on, SR 57 is the secret designation, and the road maintains the name Florida–Georgia Parkway. After the intersection with CR 158B, US 19 encounters I-10 at exit 225 in Drifton, then an intersection with CR 57A, and later CR 158. The road shares a concurrency with CR 259 as it intersects US 90 (SR 10) and CR 146, but it ends just south of the intersection with CR 149 in Monticello. US 19 finally crosses the Georgia state line where SR 57 ends and State Route 3 (SR 3) and SR 300 begin, the former of which is the state route for US 19 into Atlanta, while the latter of which is the state route for US 19 from there to Albany, Georgia.


A US 19 shield used in Florida prior to 1993

US 19 first entered Florida in 1929. It underwent three route shifts (the first in 1933, the second in 1946, and the third in 1951), which adjusted it to its current alignment and created the alternate route in Pinellas County. US 19 was extended to its southern terminus of Memphis in September 1954, when the original Sunshine Skyway Bridge opened to traffic.

From 1956 until 1993, US 19 signs in Florida featured white numbering on a red shield. The "color-coding" of U.S. Highways by FDOT was stopped when the state could no longer use federal funds to replace the signs with anything but the standard black-and-white version; a few red US 19 signs remain.
