U.S. Route 92 is a 177 mile (285 km) intrastate U.S. Route in the U.S. state of Florida. The western terminus is at Alt US 19, SR 595, and SR 687 in downtown St. Petersburg. The eastern terminus is at SR A1A in Daytona Beach. Most of US 92 is designated unsigned State Road 600.
US 92 is concurrent with SR 687 from downtown St. Petersburg to SR 600, SR 686 and SR 694 at the west end of the Gandy Causeway; unsigned SR 600 from the west end of the Gandy Causeway to west of downtown Lakeland; unsigned State Road 517 west of downtown Lakeland; SR 546 from west of downtown Lakeland to east of downtown Lakeland; and unsigned State Road 600 from east of downtown Lakeland to Daytona Beach.
Tampa Bay Area
US 92 begins along Florida State Road 687 at the intersection of ALT US 19(SR 595) in St. Petersburg. The road continues north along SR 687 until it reaches the eastern termini of Florida State Road 686 and Florida State Road 694, where it turns right on Gandy Boulevard (Florida State Road 600) before crossing the Gandy Bridge into Tampa.
After crossing the Gandy Bridge, US 92 intersects West Shore Boulevard and runs east along Gandy Boulevard until it reaches Dale Mabry Highway at the first interchange with the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway where it turns north. Dale Mabry contains the hidden Florida State Road 685 until it branches to the northeast at Henderson Boulevard. The next major intersections are Kennedy Boulevard (SR 60), then Interstate 275 (Florida) at Exits 41 A-B. In between SR 616 and SR 574, US 92 passes George M. Steinbrenner Field and Raymond James Stadium. A parclo interchange with Hillsborough Avenue takes US 92 from Dale Mabry to Hillsborough Avenue and Florida State Road 580 from Hillsborough Avenue to Dale Mabry Highway. US 92 crosses two parallel bridges over the Hillsborough River, then intersects with BUS US 41, I-275 again at Exits 47 A-B, then intersects northbound U.S. Route 41 and SR 45, where US 41 and 92 overlap each other. One other major intersection exists with SR 585 before US 41 turns southbound as the concurrency ends. After SR 583, the road becomes part of the collective-distributor roads along Interstate 4 west and east of the parclo interchange with U.S. Route 301. The east end of the interchange contains a stub for a proposed west-to-northbound ramp to 301 at the westbound flyover. Aceess to Interstate 75 is only available eastbound from I-4. Three other local roads that cross US 92 access I-4 before State Roads 566, 39A (Alexander Road), 39, 574, and 533 in Plant City.
US 92 and U.S. Highway 17 join at the south end of Lake Alfred in Polk County. State Road 600 carries US 92 from Auburndale, while State Road 555 takes US 17 from the south via Winter Haven. County Road 555 soon splits to the north along the old road through Lake Alfred, while US 17/92 runs one block east on Lake Shore Way. County Road 557 begins at Haines Boulevard, where it heads west for a block to CR 555, and then turns north towards Interstate 4; just past CR 557, US 17/92 turns east towards Haines City. It enters downtown Haines City on Hinson Avenue after crossing under U.S. Highway 27 at a cloverleaf, meeting the north end of State Road 17 before turning north on 17th Street. It soon meets County Road 580, which runs east to Poinciana. In Davenport, US 92 meets County Road 547, which heads west to U.S. Highway 27 and north along old US 17/92. US 92 then intersects with Ronald Reagan Parkway (County Road 54) at Loughman.
After crossing into Osceola County, US 92 picks up the Orange Blossom Trail name. Orange Blossom Trail (OBT) takes US 92 east and north through Kissimmee and into Orlando. The OBT name temporarily ends at Pleasant Hill Road (former State Road 531) in southern Kissimmee, where US 92 uses John Young Parkway (formerly Bermuda Avenue) to Vine Street (U.S. Highway 192/SR 530). (US 92 ran through downtown Kissimmee on Emmett Street, Broadway and Main Street until ca. 2000.) It turns east there on US 192, turning north at Main Street, which becomes OBT at the north city limits. U.S. Highway 441 (along with State Road 500) joins US 92 at US 192 - thus OBT carries US 17, US 92 and US 441, as well as unsigned SR 500 and SR 600, from Kissimmee to Orlando.
Orange Blossom Trail bypasses downtown Orlando to the west, meeting State Road 50 (Colonial Drive) northwest of downtown. At SR 50, US 92 turns east, while US 441 continues northwest on OBT towards Apopka. US 92, concurrent with SR 50 (and SR 600), meets the south end of Edgewater Drive and crosses Interstate 4 (SR 400) and State Road 527 (Orange Avenue and Magnolia Avenue) before meeting Mills Avenue (State Road 15), where US 92 turns north.
Mills Avenue carries State Road 15 on both sides of State Road 50, but is only signed as such to the south, as, north of SR 50, it carries US 92 (and unsigned SR 600). It crosses Lake Estelle on the Andrews Causeway before reaching the border between Orlando and Winter Park.
In Winter Park, US 92's name changes to Orlando Avenue. It crosses State Road 527 (Orange Avenue) and State Road 426 (Fairbanks Avenue) and meets the east end of State Road 423 (Lee Road) while bypassing downtown Winter Park to the west. Shortly after crossing into Maitland, it passes under CSX Transportation's "A" Line, and the old road through downtown Winter Park — Park Avenue — merges in from the southeast. US 92 meets the east end of County Road 438A (Lake Avenue), which heads west to Eatonville, and then splits from the old alignment - County Road 427 - near downtown Maitland. It crosses Horatio Avenue (former County Road 436A) and meets the east end of State Road 414 (Maitland Boulevard) before crossing into Seminole County.
In Seminole County, US 92 is a main commercial strip as it heads through Casselberry (where it crosses State Road 436 - Semoran Boulevard) and Longwood (where it crosses State Road 434). North of Longwood it meets the north end of State Road 419 and crosses County Road 427 (the old alignment). Lake Mary Boulevard, Airport Boulevard and State Road 417 cross US 92 in southern Sanford, and it meets the west end of County Road 427A. At 25th Street, southwest of downtown Sanford, State Road 46 comes in from the east and turns north for a concurrency near downtown; County Road 46A heads west on 25th Street. 13th Street marks the west end of County Road 415, and at 1st Street SR 46 turns west. Several blocks north of 1st Street, US 17/92 turns west along the south shore of Lake Monroe (part of the St. Johns River). Just before crossing the river into Volusia County at the west end of the lake, US 92 meets the north end of County Road 15 (once a branch of State Road 15, which runs unsigned with US 92 and SR 600 here) and crosses under Interstate 4 (SR 400) at the end of its own bridge across the river (the St. Johns River Veterans Memorial Bridge).
After crossing the St. Johns River via the Benedict Bridge, US 92 continues north into Volusia County, meeting the west ends of County Road 4162 (in DeBary), County Road 4146, and County Road 4145 (in Orange City). North of Orange City is a trumpet interchange with State Road 472, a four-lane connection to Interstate 4. US 92 then crosses County Road 4116 and meets the south end of State Road 15A, a western bypass of DeLand. US 92 passes through downtown DeLand on Woodland Boulevard, crossing State Road 44 at New York Avenue. The intersection of US 92 and SR 44 does not allow any turns — right or left — and so adjacent city streets are marked for those turns. In northern DeLand, U.S. Highway 92 (SR 600) splits to the east on International Speedway Boulevard, while U.S. Highway 17 (SR 15) continues north. To the west of the split, International Speedway Boulevard is County Road 92, a short connection to State Road 15A that allows traffic on US 92 to bypass downtown DeLand. SR 15A itself rejoins US 17 north of DeLand. From DeLand to its terminus in Daytona Beach, US 92 carries the local name, International Speedway Boulevard, as the highway passes by the Daytona International Speedway. US 92 passes by other landmarks such as Daytona Beach International Airport and Volusia Mall. US 92 spans the Halifax River and Intracoastal Waterway via the Broadway Bridge before reaching its eastern terminus at SR A1A.

US 92 was in the original 1926 plan, connecting Tampa (concurrent with US 41) to US 1 in Daytona Beach. It had been the Dixie Highway Tampa-St. Petersburg Loop from Plant City to Haines City, the West Mainline from Haines City to Orlando, and the East Florida Connector from Orlando to DeLand.
US 92 was signed along the following roads in 1927:
- SR 17 from Tampa to Haines City
- SR 2 from Haines City to Orlando
- SR 3 from Orlando to DeLand
- SR 21 from DeLand to Daytona Beach
When the bypass of downtown Tampa on SR 17 (Hillsborough Avenue) opened in the early 1930s, US 92 and US 41 were rerouted to use it. US 92 turned south from the new road where US 41 turned north, at Nebraska Avenue (former SR 5, probably then a spur of SR 5), and continued to end in downtown Tampa.
In the 1945 renumbering, the whole route of US 92 was numbered SR 600, except for the section south to downtown Tampa, which was SR 45. It was extended west and south to downtown St. Petersburg along SR 600 and SR 687 in 1953.
In 2006, US 92 (along with US 17) was re-signed to bypass downtown Kissimmee, moving it to US 192 from John Young Parkway to US 441.

|This section requires expansion. (July 2013)|
Lakeland business route
U.S. Highway 92 Business
U.S. Business Route 92 in Lakeland, Florida was a 4.2 miles (6.8 km) business route designed to keep trucks from entering Downtown Lakeland that followed Florida State Road 600 between 1961 and 1998. The route began where US 92 turned north onto SR 517. It runs along George Jenkins Boulevard, then makes a sharp southeast turn along Sloan Avenue, while George Jenkins Boulevard becomes SR 548. Sloan Avenue becomes a divided highway between the 12-foot-6-inch (3.81 m) bridge beneath the CSX line, only to emerge at the intersection of West Main Street where it turns east. The road's major intersections include a partial interchange with SR 563, and then SR 37, where West Main Street becomes East Main Street. The road makes a brief left turn onto Massachusetts Avenue in front of Lake Mirror for one block, then turns right at the end of Cedar Street where it runs along the north shore of Lake Mirror passing by Lakeland Amtrak Station. East Main makes a sharp right turn to the south before the intersection of Rose Street, then turns east again at the intersection of East Lake Street. From there it has an intersection with US 98(SR 548), and after Lake Parker Avenue makes a north turn onto Tyler Road. The road crosses under the CSX line again, this time beneath a 13-foot-6-inch (4.11 m) two-lane undivided bridge, and then curves onto East Gary Road, where it runs east until finally ending at US 92 along the south shore of Lake Parker. FDOT maps still show US Bus 92 as an existing route.
Kissimmee truck route
U.S. Highway 17-92 Truck
U.S. Truck Route 17-92 in Kissimmee, Florida was a truck bypass designed to keep trucks from entering Downtown Kissimmee. It began where U.S. Route 17-92 turned from John Young Parkway onto West Emmett Street, and continued north in a straight line along former Osceola County Road 525 until it reached U.S. Route 192, where both routes multiplexed eastbound until they reunited with the US 17/92 multiplex at North Main Street and the Orange Blossom Trail, where US 441 joined US 17-92 north to Orlando. The route existed from sometime during the 1980s until 1999, when it was decommissioned and became part of mainline US 17-92.
Orlando truck route
U.S. Highway 17-92 Truck
|Location:||Winter Park-Maitland, Florida|
Though U.S. Truck Route 17-92 is officially designated the Orlando Truck Route for US 17-92, the actual location is north of Orlando. It is designed to divert truck traffic away from a low railroad bridge that carries Amtrak's Silver Service Trains as well as CSX freight trains. The route begins west along southbound Florida State Road 423(Lee Avenue) in Winter Park, Florida, then heads north along the eastern edge of Interstate 4 along a road called Wymore Road. The road then turn east along Orange CR 438A and terminates at US 17-92 in Maitland, Florida.
