State Road 5 is a mostly-unsigned
state highwayin the state of Florida. It is mainly signed as U.S. Route 1 from its south end in Key West, Floridato 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, Floridathrough Lake Worth, Floridato Belvedere Roadin 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 Avenueuntil 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 pairnow begins, and so both directions of State Road 5 now go west one block on Belvedere Road to Dixie Highway.
