Memorial Highway branches northwest from the Veterans Expressway frontage roads to Town 'N Country. The 2.65-mile stretch between SR 589 and SR 580 (Hillsborough Avenue) doubles as County Road 576. West from CR 589 (Sheldon Road), Memorial Highway continues as a local two-lane roadway to Countryway.

A Pinellas County portion of County Road 576 lies west across Old Tampa Bay between Safety Harbor and north Clearwater. A third section of CR 576 runs through southern Hernando County, well to the north of Tampa Bay.


County Road 576 east
Memorial Highway (CR 576) east intersects Dana Shores Drive ahead of the split with Independence Parkway. Dana Shores Drive follows an original section of Memorial Highway south and east. The road encircles Rocky Point Golf Course to Skyway park at George Road. Original Memorial Highway was paved over with the Veterans Expressway east of there. Beyond the freeway, another section of original Memorial Highway was abandoned due to expansion of Tampa International Airport. Photo taken 05/27/05.
