County Road 155 represents a continuation of Florida 155 north along Meridian Road, from the Interstate 10 underpass and Tallahassee city line to the Georgia state line. The two-lane roadway connects a series of forested subdivisions with the city to Bannerman Road (CR 0342) near the Killearn Lakes Plantation community. Like most other north Leon County Roads, Meridian Road doubles as a canopy road as it winds northeast by Lake Iamonia to Grady County, Georgia.
