The HaSharon Junction (Hebrew: צומת השרון), commonly known as Beit Lid Junction (Hebrew: צומת בית ליד), is an key road junction in the Sharon region of Israel. It intersects Highway 4 and Highway 57. The junction serves as a large transportation hub for dozens of Egged and Nativ Express buses.

On the southwest corner of the junction is Ashmoret Prison, a civilian jail.

The junction was the scene of the Beit Lid suicide bombing, a 1995 attack by Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

It is planned that in the future, a large interchange will replace the current intersection. It will be located slightly north of the existing junction, along a new alignment of Highway 57, which will be shifted to the north.
