State Road 845 (SR 845), locally known as Powerline Road, is a 16.314-mile-long north–south divided highway serving northern Broward County and southern Palm Beach County, Florida, U.S.A. The route extends from an intersection with Sunrise Boulevard (State Road 838) near downtown Ft. Lauderdale, north to an intersection with Glades Road (State Road 808) near Boca Raton.

Like Military Trail (State Road 809) to the east, State Road 845 is a major commuter highway paralleling Florida's Turnpike (State Road 91) and Interstate 95 (State Road 9) and often used as an alternative for the often-congested expressways. The road received its namesake from the parallel high tension power lines for almost its entire length.

Route description[edit]

SR 845 begins at an intersection between Powerline Road and Sunrise Boulevard (SR 838) in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Powerline Road continues south of here without designation until Broward Boulevard. SR 845 passes through mostly residential areas, with more commercial businesses along the side of the road and along nearby major roads. As the highway progresses further north, more country clubs and golf courses replace smaller less affluent neighborhoods. SR 845 is a four to eight lane boulevard with speeds between 40 miles per hour (64 km/h) and 45 miles per hour (72 km/h).
