Florida State Route 22
|Get started||Panama City|
According to act-test-centers, State Route 22 or State Road 22 (SR-22) is a state route in the U.S. state of Florida. The road forms an east-west route in the Florida Panhandle, from Panama City to Wewahitchka. The road is also called the Wewa Highway. State Road 22 is 42 kilometers long.
State Road 22 begins in Springfield, a small suburb of greater Panama City. Here the road joins the US 98 Business Route. The road heads east as a two-lane city road and crosses the actual US 98 not far after that. You leave the urban area fairly quickly, after which the rest of the route leads through a sparsely populated forest area. There are no significant side roads until the terminus in Wewahitchka, where State Road 22 ends at State Road 71.
State Road 22 was created with the renumbering of 1945 and has always run between Panama City and Wewahitchka. No significant upgrades have been made to the route.
10,000 to 16,000 vehicles drive daily in the built-up area of Panama City, beyond that, 3,000 vehicles drive as far as Wewahitchka.
Florida State Route 25
State Route 25 or State Road 25 (SR-25) is a state route in the U.S. state of Florida. State Road 25 is largely an administrative and unsigned number for several US Highways on the route from Miami to the Georgia border. The route is a total of 690 kilometers long.
State Road 25 begins in Miami as NE 36th Street. The route coincides almost directly with US 27 in Florida and follows it for 438 kilometers to Lady Lake, a village north of Leesburg. This route leads through the central part of Florida and outside the Miami region it mainly passes through smaller towns, but through the urbanized region of Central Florida. Between Lady Lake and Belleview, the former State Road 25 follows an alternate route via Weirsdale and Ocklawaha. This is now County Road 25.
From Belleview, the route follows US 441 to Lake City, a 148-mile stretch that passes through Ocala and Gainesville. From Lake City, the route follows US 41 to the Georgia border at Jennings.
With the renumbering of the state roads in 1945, a grid was introduced in Florida where odd routes run north-south and each x5 number is a primary route, in this case State Road 25. Because the network of US Highways was not skipped, many primary routes in whole or in part with US Highways, in the case of State Road 25 US 27, US 301, US 441 and US 41. The only section that deviated from this was a 45-kilometer section between Lady Lake and Belleview in Central Florida. However, this section is no longer a state road and has since been numbered County Road 25.

|Get started||Fanning Springs|
State Route 26 or State Road 26 (SR-26) is a state route in the U.S. state of Florida. The road forms an east-west route through the north of the state, from Fanning Springs to Putnam Hall. The main town on the route is Gainesville. State Road 26 is 100 kilometers long.

State Road 26 begins in the village of Fanning Springs on US 98 and heads east through an agricultural area that has experienced some degree of urbanization. This is in the catchment area of the city of Gainesville. The road is single carriageway and crosses a number of north-south routes. From Newberry, the road has 2×2 lanes and connects to Interstate 75 on the west side of the city of Gainesville. The road then forms a four -lane urban arterial that runs west to east through Gainesville, past the University of Florida and through downtown. East of Gainesville, the road is single-lane again, passing through densely wooded areas to 100 State Road in the hamlet of Putnam Hall.
State Road 26 was created in 1945 as an east-west route through the college town of Gainesville. The start and end points are no longer changed. In and around Gainesville, the road has been widened to 4 lanes. The last section was widened to a 2×2 divided highway east of Newberry in the early 2000s.
7,000 to 11,000 vehicles drive daily between Fanning Springs and Newberry, increasing to 19,000 to 27,000 vehicles on the 2×2 portion to I-75 at Gainesville. The busiest point is west of Gainesville at the junction with I-75 where 52,000 vehicles drive daily. This drops to 20,000 to 30,000 vehicles through Gainesville itself and 10,000 vehicles through Melrose. The last part up to Putnam Hall has only 4,000 vehicles per day.

State Road 29 begins in the hamlet of Carnestown on US 41, not far from the sea. The road then heads north through the uninhabited Everglades, a vast forest and wetland area. After 30 kilometers there is a connection to Interstate 75 (Alligator Alley). Another 15 kilometers north, you leave the Everglades and the road leads through a more open area of plantations and meadows. Here are a number of small towns on the route, most prominently Immokalee and LaBelle. The road ends at Palmdale on US 27.
In the late 1800s, the small town of Everglades emerged on the southwest side of the Everglades, which until then had been inaccessible by land. US 41 was built through the Everglades in the late 1920s, also known as the Tamiami Trail. A north-south route to Everglades was also developed, which became State Road 29. Everglades was later renamed Everglades City. State Road 29 was later shortened, the southernmost section between Everglades City and US 41 is now a county road.
Every day, 1,300 vehicles drive between US 41 and I-75 and 3,000 to 7,000 vehicles between I-75 and Immokalee. After that, 6,000 vehicles will drive to LaBelle and 3,500 vehicles to Palmdale.
