Route description[edit]

Looking west on SR 580 approaching US 19

The heavily-traveled SR 580 is locally known by a variety of names. In Pinellas County (Dunedin, Safety Harbor, and Oldsmar) it is Skinner Boulevard, Main Street and Tampa Road. A motorist continuing eastward on SR 580 in Hillsborough County drives on Tampa Road, Hillsborough Avenue (through Town 'n' Country), Dale Mabry Highway (between US 92-SR 600 and SR 597), and Busch Boulevard (which continues past the eastern SR 580 terminus as Bullard Parkway).

Noteworthy sites along or near SR 580 include Countryside Mall, Trinity College, Tampa International Airport, Hillsborough Community College, Raymond James Stadium, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, and the two colleges on the State Road's eastern terminus. SR 580 crosses Safety Harbor - the northwestern tip of Old Tampa Bay − at the SR 580 Bridge between Oldsmar and Safety Harbor.[2]
