Former[edit]

Tangerine–Tavares business loop[edit]


U.S. Highway 441 Business
Location: TangerineTavares, Florida
Existed: 1950's–1960

U.S. Route 441 Business (US 441 Business) was a 7.1-mile-long (11.4 km) former segment that ran from Tangerine to Tavares, Florida, and served Mount Dora, Florida. The route was secretly SR 500A, but was downgraded to a county road. Today it is signed as County Road 500A (in Orange County) and County Road Old 441 (in Lake County).

The former US 441 Business begins at US 441 as CR 500A in Tangerine at the historic Mount Zion Primitive Baptist Church, and runs northwest as it eventually crosses the OrangeLake county line, becoming CR Old 441. At East Crane Avenue, Old 441 curves north and becomes South Highland Street. It runs between the Mount Dora Golf Club and a campus of the Nova Southeastern University before crossing a bridge over a former Atlantic Coast Line Railroad line. The intersection of East First Avenue is the western terminus of County Road 46, a county extension of SR 46. West of Old 441, East First Avenue is a city street. South Highland Street becomes North Highland Street from here. Four blocks later, CR Old 441 turns from North Highland Street, west onto East Fifth Avenue.

The first intersection from here is Clayton Street. A few blocks later, it runs along the south side of a large Methodist Church and then Donnelly Park between North Baker Street and the southern terminus of County Road 44B (North Donnelly Street), where Old 441 changes from East Fifth Avenue to West Fifth Avenue. After the blinking light at North McDonald Street, it curves to the right and begins to run parallel to the same former Atlantic Coast Line Railroad line on the south side that it crossed over near Mount Dora Golf Club. Though the road is on a hill here, it takes a slight downgrade along the tracks by the time it reaches the former intersections with West Sixth Avenue and Helen Street, but remains above track level until it reaches the intersection of Overlook Drive. Here, it moves slightly below the tracks as it intersects Oakland Drive and Oakland Lane, which runs under a trestle with 8 feet (2.4 m) clearance, but quickly levels our as it approaches the intersection of County Road 452 (Lakeshore Drive).

A series of convoluted[clarification needed] turning lanes can be found at the termini of County Road 44C and County Road 19A, the latter of which is incorrectly listed on Google Maps as being part of Old 441. In reality, Old 441 moves southwest onto Tavares Road, and continues this pattern until turning straight west after Bay Road. Later, it moves away from the railroad line at Merry Road. Around Anderson Drive, Old 441 becomes East Alfred Street. Continuing westward, the former US 441 Business serves as the western terminus of County Road 19A, but not the terminus of Dora Avenue, which continues south toward Main Street. Shortly after this, it crosses a railroad line for the former Tavares Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Depot. West of Barrow Avenue, Old 441 makes a right turn from East Alfred Street to Lake Shore Boulevard, where it runs parallel to a rail trail that was originally part of the ACL line it ran parallel to in Mount Dora. The road meets its demise at a wye with SR 19, and US 441/SR 44 ending at the US 441/SR 44 section of the wye.

Eustis truck route[edit]


U.S. Highway 441 Truck
Location: Eustis, Florida
Existed: 1980s–????

U.S. Route 441 Truck (US 441 Truck) was a 3.4-mile-long (5.5 km) truck route located in Eustis, Florida. Today part of that route is known as southern County Road 19A.


Lady Lake–Belleview alternate route[edit]


U.S. Highway 27-441 Alternate
Location: Lady Lake-Belleview, Florida
Existed: ?–1980

A U.S. Route 441 Alternate (US 441 Alternate) around Lake Weir, from Lady Lake to Belleview existed until 1980. This was also concurrent with US 27 Alternate, and today is a bi-county maintained segment of SR 25.

The former US 27 Alternate/US 441 Alternate begins on the west side of US 27/US 441 as Oak Road across the street from a gated community. It immediately curves north, where it passed under a bridge that carries US 27/US 441, with no other access to its parent route besides Fennell Boulevard, which is across the street from another gated community. The road runs east of The Villages as it crosses the LakeMarion county line, where it straightens from northwest to north, and then curves more towards the northeast before County Road 42 in Weirsdale.

North of Weirsdale, the road served as the main route along the east shore of Lake Weir, although it's not always the closest road to the lake. It turns straight north as it enters Eastlake Weir, and continues to run along the lake curving west along the north side as it enters Ocklawaha, where it serves as both the southern terminus of County Road 464C (Southeast 135th Avenue), and later the southeastern terminus of County Road 464. After passing near Lake Weir Seaplane Base, the road heads northwest again just before the intersection with Southeast 119th Court. Closer to Belleview, the road encounters the eastern terminus of County Road 25A, and later merges with Southeast 110th Street Road. After this the road enters the Belleview city limits and intersects SR 35 (County Road 35), where it briefly becomes SR 25 and immediately crosses the CSX Wildwood Subdivision, part of the CSX S-Line. The former US 27 Alternate/US 441 Alternate terminates at US 27/US 301/US 441 at the intersection with the eastern terminus of County Road 484.

Ocala–Reddick alternate route[edit]


U.S. Highway 441 Alternate
Location: OcalaReddick, Florida
Existed: 1978–1981

U.S. Route 441 Alternate (US 441 Alternate) ran for 14 miles (23 km) along a former segment of US 441 from Ocala, Florida to Reddick, Florida. Today this segment is County Road 25A and is named Northwest Gainesville Road for its entire length.

The former US 441 Alternate begins at the intersection of US 301/US 441 across from the intersection of Old Anthony Road, where it branches off to the northwest, just northwest of the northern terminus of County Road Old 441[citation needed] (North Magnolia Avenue). The first sites that it passes by are the state branch of the United Pentecostal Church,[2] and then a local school that contains a school bus parking lot of the Marion County Public School system. It ran through Northwest 27th Avenue Road and Northwest 63rd Street Kendrick, where it then made a reverse curve to the left and then right, just before intersecting SR 326 in Zuber, which connects SR 40 in Silver Springs to Interstate 75 (I-75). North of there, the road remains generally at the same northwest angle passing by many of the farms and wooded areas typical of northwestern rural Florida. Shortly after a used truck dealership across from the intersection of Northwest 89th Street is a dirt racing track previously known as the Ocala Speedway, now known as the Bubba Raceway Park[3] A gas station can be found south of Northwest 100th Street in Martin, but it is the most notable landmark along the route. Just north of this is an otherwise non-descript field used by the Greater Ocala Dog Club.[4] Later it passes by the Marion County Correctional Institute, then passes through the grounds of the Lowell Correctional Institution[5] and across from the northern edge of that the Florida State Fire College[6] North of the territory of the Fire College the route ran over a bridge over a former Atlantic Coast Line Railroad line that in recent times has been truncated in the next town, which happens to be Lowell where US 441 Alternate curved straight north had an intersection with County Road 329. US 441 Alternate continued this straight south-to-north pattern through Reddick where the road encounters an all-way stop intersection with County Road 316 which also provides access to I-75 from communities such as Citra, Fort McCoy, and Salt Springs. The straight trajectory continued until the intersection with Northwest 153rd Street, and then the route curved to the northwest again. During this curve, a former segment of that road called Northwest 44th Avenue Road branches off to the west and runs parallel to the route. After the intersection with Northwest 160th Street, the route straightened out again, and NW 44th Avenue Rd terminates with the old route. The road passes the Millwood Cemetery, and then curves northwest once again before finally terminating at an at-grade interchange with US 441.
