Count Road 52 ALT - Clinton Avenue

Home » Guides » Florida » Count Road 52 ALT - Clinton Avenue

Pasco County Road 52A provides a southern bypass of Dade City along Clinton Avenue. Measuring 4.61 miles in length, CR 52A stems east from CR 579 (Prospect Road), just south of SR 52, to CR 35A (Old Lakeland Highway). Clinton Avenue was expanded to a four lane arterial between CR 41 (Fort King Road) and U.S. 98/301 in 2013/14.

The future realignment of State Road 52 to the south of Dade City will overtake CR 52A along Clinton Avenue. The four lane highway will extend west from CR 52A at CR 579 to Mc Cabe Road and the existing roadway along SR 52 leading to Interstate 75. Construction on the relocation of SR 52 started in 2019 and runs to 2024.
