Description

U.S. Route 17 in Sanford, Florida, in 1958. U.S. 17 begins in Punta Gorda, briefly runs east, and then goes north along Peace River through Arcadia, Zolfo Springs, and Wauchula. The road then joins U.S. Highway 98 at Fort Meade and continues northward until Bartow, when it separates to travel northeast. At Winter Haven, U.S. Route 17 becomes concurrent with U.S. Route 92 through Kissimmee, where both highways join U.S. Route 192. When all three roads meet U.S. Route 441, U.S. 17-92 turns north into Downtown Orlando and then splits from U.S. 441 at Florida State Road 50 (Colonial Drive) and continues east until it turns north at Florida State Road 15 (Mills Avenue).

In Sanford, U.S. 17-92 crosses over the St. Johns River into Volusia County and then splits north of DeLand as U.S. 17 travels north toward Palatka, again crossing the St. Johns River. The highway then continues through Clay County, suburban Jacksonville, and Nassau County until it reaches the Florida border. The entire highway spans across Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia.
