Wedgefield is a community bounded by SR 520 and SR 528 (Beachline Expressway), in a corner such that the two roads make a
wedgeshape where they meet. The other major road is Dallas Blvd., formerly SR 13, which used to link to East Colonial Drive but has not for decades since a portion north of Wedgefield was demolished and sodded over.
