State Road 548 (SR 548), the Lakeland In-Town Bypass, is a short six-lane arterial in Lakeland, Florida, USA, opened in early 2004. It connects George Jenkins Boulevard (west of downtown) to U.S. Highway 98 and SR 600 (Bartow Road and Main Street) east of downtown, allowing traffic to bypass downtown.

In mid-2005, U.S. 98 was rerouted onto SR 548.[citation needed]

History[edit]

SR 548 opened in 2004.

Second Phase[edit]

SR 548 was extended west across SR 563 (Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue) and SR 539 (Kathleen Road) terminating at George Jenkins Boulevard west of downtown. This provides a full east–west bypass to supplement US 92 (Memorial Boulevard) and SR 400 (Interstate 4).

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Lakeland, Polk County.
