SR 24 ends at D and 2nd Streets, one block off the Gulf of Mexico in the city of Cedar Key.

State Road 24 originates at Cedar Key on the Gulf of Mexico and travels northeast 72.6 miles to Waldo. Outside of Gainesville, the highway is mostly rural, connecting U.S. 19/98 at Otter Creek with the Levy County seat of Bronson at U.S. 27 Alternate.

Within Alachua County, SR 24 angles northeast from Archer, where it meets U.S. 27/41, to I-75 and the University of Florida (UF). SR 24A provides a truck route bypass around UF and central Gainesville along side SR 226 (SW/SE 16th Avenue) and SR 331 (11th Street) north. SR 24 combines with U.S. 441 (SW 13th Street) north from Archer Road and SR 26 (University Avenue) east through Downtown Gainesville. Leaving Gainesville, SR 24 bee lines northeast along Waldo Road to Gainesville Regional Airport (GNV) and U.S. 301.
