State Road 405

Home » Guides » Florida » State Road 405

 

State Road 405 forms a belt route looping 9.828 miles west from U.S. 1 around the city of Titusville. The state road stems west from U.S. 1 outside Downtown along South Street through the residential street grid. Beyond Rock Pit Road, SR 405 reduces to two lanes and arcs southwest along a mostly rural stretch to Fox Lake Road. A handful of subdivisions, including Forest Hills Estates and Fox Lake Manor crop up along the route.

Heading south along the Titusville city line, SR 405 (South Street) parallels I-95 one quarter mile to the east. The state road expands into a divided arterial ahead of the commercialized intersection with SR 50 (Cheney Highway). Angling southeast, SR 405 follows Columbia Boulevard for 4.406 miles back to U.S. 1. NASA Causeway (unsigned County Road 405) extends 5.687 miles east from the cloverleaf interchange joining U.S. 1 and SR 405 across the Indian River to Space Commerce Way at Kennedy Space Center.
