State Road 812 (SR 812) is a short two-lane state highway located north of Belle Glade, Florida. Known as Hooker Highway, it forms a portion of a truck bypass around Belle Glade.

Palm Beach County transferred the road to the Florida Department of Transportation in 2008 to create this truck bypass, which also uses SR 715 south of SR 812.[2] Signs are now posted banning through trucks from Belle Glade, similar to those directing trucks around Pahokee on SR 729.[3] A similar proposal had been made twenty years earlier.[4]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Palm Beach County.
