State Road 5 is a mostly-unsigned state highway in the state of Florida. It is mainly signed as US 1 from its south end in Key West, Florida to Jacksonville, Florida, and US 17 from Jacksonville to the Georgia state line at the Saint Marys River. US 1 is SR 15 northwest from Jacksonville.

However, from northern Lantana, Florida through Lake Worth, Florida to Belvedere Road in West Palm Beach, Florida, SR 5 is separate from US 1, which runs to the west on the older but wider Dixie Highway. Here, SR 5 runs along a road named Olive Avenue.

Route description

SR 5 uses the parallel Olive Avenue from just north of Lantana Road (CR 812) in Lantana until Belvedere Road in West Palm Beach, where it turns west one block to rejoin Dixie Highway and US 1. Olive Avenue and Dixie Highway are parallel and extremely close to each other for this entire length. Olive Avenue is also signed as Federal Highway, but this name is not used as much.


Until around 2004, Olive Avenue carried northbound US 1 (and SR 5) north from Belvedere Road. Olive Avenue is now a two-way city street from Belvedere Road north to SR 704 where the one-way pair now begins, and so both directions of SR 5 now go west one block on Belvedere Road to Dixie Highway.[1][2][3]
