U.S. Route 17
Highway system

A total of at least twenty-three special routes of U.S. Route 17 have existed.

Florida[edit]

Kissimmee truck route[edit]


U.S. Highway 17-92 Truck
LocationKissimmee, Florida

US 17-92 Truck is an alternate route for US 17-92 in northern Kissimmee, Florida, following John Young Parkway and the Osceola Parkway (CR 522) instead of Vine Street (US 192) and Orange Blossom Trail. It was signed in about 2011 when the single-point urban interchange at John Young and Osceola Parkways was completed.

Until 1999, a truck bypass was signed around Downtown Kissimmee. It began where US 17-92 formerly turned from John Young Parkway onto West Emmett Street, and continued north in a straight line along John Young Parkway to US 192, where it turned east until it returned to US 17-92 at North Main Street (Orange Blossom Trail). The route existed from sometime during the 1980s until 1999, when US 17-92 itself was rerouted to bypass downtown Kissimmee.

Maitland truck route[edit]

LocationWinter Park-Maitland, Florida

US 17-92 Truck is designated to divert overheight truck traffic away from a low railroad bridge that carries the SunRail rail line over US 17-92 in southern Maitland. The route follows State Road 423 (Lee Road), Interstate 4, and State Road 414 (Maitland Boulevard) in Winter Park, Florida and Maitland. It formerly used Wymore Road and Lake Avenue (CR 438A) instead of I-4 and SR 414.

U.S. Route 17 Business
LocationWilmington, North Carolina
Length8.1 mi[6] (13.0 km)
Existed1971–present

U.S. Route 17 Business (US 17 Bus) is a 13.0-mile (20.9 km) business route through Wilmington. US 17 Bus was established in 1971, two years after US 17 was realigned onto new routing; it traversed 1.8 miles (2.9 km) along 3rd and Market Streets, between Dawson/Wooster and 16th/17th Streets. Market Street was part of the original alignment, but goes south instead of north along 3rd Street to meetup with US 17.[7][8] In 1979, AASHTO officially recognized US 17 Bus.[9]

In 2005, AASHTO approved the US 17 Bus extension upon completion of and realignment of US 17 along the Wilmington bypass. On June 30, 2006, when the Wilmington bypass opened, US 17 Bus replaced segments of US 17: North along Market Street, between 16th/17th Streets and near Futch Creek Road, and south crossing the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge to Eagle Island.[10][11] In May 2015, AASHTO approved a request to reroute US 17 back through Wilmington, following US 76 along Oleander Drive and Military Cutoff Road; the new alignment reduces the length of existing US 17 Bus to along 3rd Street and Market Street.[12] In May 2017, US 17 Bus was officially reduced as approved by AASHTO.[13]

US 17 Bus shares brief concurrency with US 76 and US 421, while crossing over the Cape Fear River. It is also part of the Cape Fear Historic Byway, which features scenic urban areas, colonial-era streets, the USS North Carolina battleship and the city parks.

U.S. Route 17 Business (US 17 Bus) was established in 1977 as a renumbering of mainline US 17 through Edenton, via Queen Street and Broad Street. In 1996 it was rerouted along Virginia Road to Broad Street and removed routing through the downtown area and along Queen Street, becoming SR 1204. However, in 2012, NCDOT reversed course and reverted the business loop back to its original routing; thanks in part of not completing the formal route change package and distributing it (i.e. updating the TEAAS and road signs in the area). NC 32 shares a concurrency along Broad Street, in the downtown area.[28][29][30]

Both streets cross under the Fredericksburg (VRE station), where US BUS 1 joins US BUS 17 along the same parallel one-way streets, until they reach Herndon Street and become a two-way street again at Princess Anne Street. US Bus 1 & 17 continues to run northwest until they reach US 1 where US BUS 1 terminates, but US BUS 17 joins and cross the Rappahannock River, and enters Falmouth. US BUS 17 leaves US 1 at the west end of Virginia State Route 218 where it runs northwest onto Warrenton Road before finally terminating at the north end of the I-95/US 17 multiplex at Exit 133-B.

Former Routes[edit]

Jacksonville alternate route[edit]


U.S. Highway 17 Alternate
LocationJacksonville, Florida
Length1.1 mi (1.8 km)

The Roosevelt Expressway is a spur of Interstate 10 (I-10; SR 8) west of downtown Jacksonville, in the U.S. state of Florida, built partially to freeway standards. It travels northeast from an intersection with Roosevelt Boulevard (U.S. Route 17 (US 17; SR 15), traveling parallel with nearby McDuff Avenue (SR 129), to a partial interchange with I-10.

The road is designated as a spur of SR 15,[37] and was formerly numbered State Road 15A.[38] It has also been – and may still be – an unsigned U.S. Route 17 Alternate (US 17 Alt.),[38] which originally continued east on I-10 and north on I-95 to return to US 17 north of the Trout River.

US 17 north at the interchange with the Roosevelt Expressway

Roosevelt Expressway is the bypass built as a spur of I-10, which converted US 17 into a limited-access Expressway north of Blanding Boulevard (SR 21), bypassing the Post Street/College Street route that Roosevelt Boulevard used to travel through the Riverside and Avondale historic district, passing by McDuff Avenue (SR 129) to I-10 eastbound. The expressway is accessible southbound via I-10 west as a left exit (exit 361).[39]

The current design was preferred over the proposed River Oaks Freeway, which would have decimated the Avondale district. The partial interchanges with Blanding and I-10 reflect the nature of the original need of a bypass system. Intended to stimulate commerce and encourage connectivity to Jacksonville's downtown to and from the suburbs and Orange Park, while streamlining commutes and lessening the impact such travel was to potentially have on Jacksonville's oldest areas in the southwest side of town by removing high volume and chaotic redevelopment from the streets of Avondale and Lakeside Park, the area east of the Roosevelt Expressway is now protected in the form of a zoning overlay largely allowed by the basic design of this alternate route. Roosevelt Expressway has been signed in the last number of years as Roosevelt Boulevard, even though it's still in the JTA books as Expressway. It is part of the Blue Star Memorial Highway, and named for President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

In early 2006, the Florida Department of Transportation applied to the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials to reroute US 17 via the Roosevelt Expressway, I-10, I-95 and US 23. If this is accepted, US 17 Alt. will be eliminated. As of March 2007, it appears that US 17 has been rerouted.

U.S. Route 17 Alternate (US 17 Alt.) was an alternate route of US 17 that existed entirely within the city limits of Savannah. The roadway that would eventually become US 17 Alt. was established between November 1946 and February 1948 as SR 25 Spur, from US 17/SR 25 on the western edge of the city to US 17/US 80/SR 25/SR 26 in the main part.[45][46] Between April 1949 and August 1950, it was then indicated to have started at US 17/SR 25 (Ogeechee Road), traveled east-southeast on 52nd Street, turned left on Whatley Avenue and traveled to the northeast, curved to the north-northeast onto Montgomery Street and traveled north-northeast to its northern terminus.[47][43] By the beginning of 1952, US 17 Alt. was established on the path of SR 25 Spur from US 17/SR 25 east-southeast on Mills B. Lane Boulevard, northeast on Whatley Avenue, and north-northeast on Montgomery Street, as previously.[43][44] In 1953, the path of US 17 Alt. on SR 25 Spur was redesignated as the northbound lanes of US 17.[41][42]

The entire route was in Savannah, Chatham County.

U.S. Route 17 Alternate (US 17 Alt.) was an alternate route of US 17 that existed in Savannah, Georgia and the southern part of South Carolina. It was concurrent with State Route 25 Alternate (SR 25 Alt.) for its entire length in Georgia. Between June 1954 and June 1955, US 17 Alt. and SR 25 Alt. were established from an intersection with the southbound lanes of US 17/SR 25 (Ogeechee Road), north-northeast on Stiles Avenue, right onto Gwinnett Street to the east-southeast, and left onto Boundary Street to the north-northeast. The highways reached the South Carolina state line, where SR 25 Alt. reached its northern terminus. US 17 Alt. crossed over the Savannah River on a toll bridge. It curved to the northwest and reached its northern terminus, another intersection with US 17.[50][51] In 1985, US 17 Alt./SR 25 Alt. was rerouted to begin at an interchange with I-516/US 17/US 80/SR 21/SR 25/SR 26. It traveled east-southeast on Bay Street, turned right onto West Broad Street and traveled to the south-southwest, turned right onto York Street and traveled to the west-northwest, and turned right onto Boundary Street to continue as before.[52][53] In 1991, the path of US 17 Alt./SR 25 Alt. was redesignated as SR 25 Conn.[48][49]
