State Road 2 (SR 2) is the designation of two east–west state highways, each having at least one terminus at the Sunshine State's border with Georgia. Both segments lie entirely within four miles (6 km) of Florida's northern boundary.

Route description[edit]

The western segment of SR 2 extends 61 miles (98 km) from its western terminus (an intersection with SR 81) south of Sweet Gum Head, Florida to the Georgia border near Bascom, Florida. The road continues across the Chattahoochee River and becomes Georgia State Route 91 in Seminole County, Georgia near Donalsonville. The predominantly rural SR 2 passes through the towns of Pittman, Noma, Campbellton, and Malone as it crosses Holmes and Jackson Counties in the Florida panhandle.

The eastern segment of SR 2 is a 15-mile-long road crossing the Okefenokee Swamp as it connects two separate sections of Georgia State Route 94 between Council, Georgia and Moniac, Georgia. This portion of the highway is extremely deserted and is traveled on very rarely. With most of the roadway constructed adjacent to a track maintained and operated by the Norfolk Southern Railway, it serves no Florida municipalities (although Taylor, Florida is ten miles (16 km) to the south in Baker County). SR 2 clips the northeastern corner of Columbia County with the segment's westernmost mile. The routing of SR 2 continues as CR 2 at the Florida border in Nassau County just east of St. George, Georgia for about a mile until its intersection with County Road 121.
