That looks like an old stretch of pavement on a former routing parallel to the railroad (CSXT, former Atlantic Coast Line).  If you look carefully, that old pavement and/or gravel is still visible along the edge of the railroad right-of-way all the way up until US-17/US-92 comes back over just north of Pomona Heights.  It actually looks like much of it is getting some backroad use starting at Shamrock Road (just north of Haines City), going up behind the industrial machine junkyard and ending there at the main junkyard complex.

Wow. Good eye.

Now what about this;
Old weigh station, agricultural inspection station, or something else?

BTW, I also found out the original Polk County Rest Areas on I-4 were closer to Exit 33.

Unclear, though it was there in the 1957 aerial. The current US 17 ag station was also there in the 1957 aerial.

Late night update; The Hernando County Road 576 extension in Masaryktown is complete. All that really needs to be done now is the work on County Line Road (CR 578) between the Suncoast Parkway and the western approach to the Ayers Road Extension.

After reading more on the Florida state routes grid, does anyone know why I-75's secret designation is FL 93, instead of a number in its grid spot, like FL 43? Same with hidden FL 91 on the Turnpike.
