State Road 26 (SR 26) is an east–west route across North Central Florida.

Route description[edit]

The western terminus of SR 26 is at US 19/98/27 Alternate(unsigned SR 55) in Fanning Springs, near the Gilchrist/Levy county line. The route proceeds east through Trenton where it is names West Wade Street and East Wade Street, then into Alachua County and Newberry as West Newberry Road, until it reaches Interstate 75 just west of Gainesville.

SR 26 in Gainesville on University Avenue, approaching US 441/SR 24

There, it becomes University Avenue, as the road approaches State Road 26A before it cuts through the University of Florida and Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, followed by a merge with SR 24 at U.S. Route 441 (13th Street) and SR 20 at SR 329 (Main Street), separating again near the eastern city limits. Skirting the western and northern shores of Newnan's Lake, it then crosses US 301 in Orange Heights, although a realignment of SR 26 south of the existing intersection is being built by the Florida Depoartment of Transportation that includes an interchange.[2] The next town along the route is Melrose, where the road enters Putnam County and crosses SR 21, before it ends at SR 100 in Putnam Hall.
