State Road 5 is a mostly-unsigned state highway in the state of Florida. It is mainly signed as U.S. Route 1 from its south end in Key West, Florida to Jacksonville, Florida, and U.S. Route 17 from Jacksonville to the Georgia state line at the Saint Marys River). U.S. Route 1 is State Road 15 northwest from Jacksonville.

However, from northern Lantana, Florida through Lake Worth, Florida to Belvedere Road in West Palm Beach, Florida, State Road 5 is separate from U.S. Route 1, which runs to the west on the older but wider Dixie Highway. State Road 5 uses the parallel Olive Avenue until Belvedere Road, where it turns west one block to rejoin Dixie Highway and U.S. Route 1. Until around 2004, Olive Avenue carried northbound U.S. Route 1 (State Road 5) north from Belvedere Road. Olive Avenue is now a two-way city street from Belvedere Road north to State Road 704 where the one-way pair now begins, and so both directions of State Road 5 now go west one block on Belvedere Road to Dixie Highway.
