State Road 546

Home » Guides » Florida » State Road 546

SR 546 follows Memorial Boulevard east from Interstate 4 to U.S. 92 (Wabash Avenue) in the city of Lakeland. The 5.85 mile long route underlays U.S. 92 east from Wasbash Avenue 4.12 miles to a point midway between Gary Road and E Lake Parker Drive. SR 600 resumes east from there as the counterpart of U.S. 92 to Auburndale. SR 700 also coincides with U.S. 92/SR 546 between U.S. 98 (Florida Avenue) and N Lake Parker Avenue. This is a remnant from when U.S. 98 overlapped with U.S. 92 (Memorial Boulevard) east to N Lake Parker Avenue south.

The state road is not acknowledged on I-4 guide signs for Exit 28 and only posted along Memorial Boulevard westbound.
