State Road 500A
Location: Tavares
A former alignment of US 192 that was once part of SR 500 (red).

State Road 500A (SR 500A) is a short signed state highway in Tavares, Florida, United States, connecting U.S. Highway 441 (SR 500) with State Road 19.[2][3] Other alignments have existed, including Lake County's "Old 441" / Orange County Road 500A, between SR 19 and US 441 through Tavares, Eustis and Mount Dora; and a former section of U.S. Route 192 in eastern Osceola County.[4] Old USGS maps show the abandoned section of the Kissimmee Highway between Lake X and Deer Park having been SR 500A at some point.
