In Bartow, SR 35 turns west and follows East Main Street, before turning north again on North Broadway Avenue, and rejoining US 98 again at SR 60 (Van Fleet Drive).
Evidence of SR 35's existence can be found in Hardee County, Florida along County Roads 35A & 35B in Coker, Wauchula, and Zolfo Springs. Polk County's evidence of SR 35's existence can be found with County Road 35A between Lakeland and Providence, and in Pasco County, Florida, evidence of SR 35's existence can be found with County Road 35 Alternate between Branchborough and Dade City. According to some maps, County Road 41 Alternate (Spring Valley Road) was previously known as CR 35B, and was extended to US 98-301 north of Dade City along Frazee Hill Road.
Within Belleview, the road is briefly co-signed with US 27-441 (SR 25-500) then turns right at the eastern terminus of CR 484, where it is signed independently along Southeast Hames Road, and then turns left again at Baseline Road, where it curves north as it leaves the city. While State Road 35 terminates at State Road 40 near the site of the former Wild Waterswater park in Silver Springs, the road continues northward as County Road 35 north towards its terminus at State Road 326.
County Road 35A is a spur of SR 35 in the northwestern Lakeland area. It begins at Interstate 4 and State Road 539 at Exit 31. The road runs along the east side of the CSX Vitis Subdivision until it reaches Kathleen, where it turns straight north. From there it eventually reunites with SR 35.
County Road 35 Alternate is the bannered route of SR 35 in the southeastern Pasco County. The route begins on Berry Boulevard at County Road 54 in Branchborough just west of the Hillsborough River, and curves to the west onto Melrose Avenue where it approaches Vitis, where CSX's Yeoman Subdivision and Vitis Subdivision merge into the Wildwood Subdivision. The route then turns right onto the Zephyrhills Bypass(CR 535). From there it is named Old Lakeland Highway and follows the west side of the Wildwood Subdivision past an unnumbered interchange with US 98 near Ellerslie, and eventually terminates at US 98/301 in Dade City. Since turns are restricted at this north end, Dick Jarrett Way provides several movements.
Former County Road 35B was shown on some maps as Spring Valley Road between both ends of County Road 41 from north of Dade City to Blanton, and US 98-301 north of Dade City along Payne Road, Fourteenth Street and Frazee Hill Road. Today, Frazee Hill Road, 14th Street, and Payne Road are strictly local streets, and Spring Valley Road is County Road Alternate 41.
