US Highway 27 is a major north-south highway that originates in South Florida and crosses the Florida/Georgia state line north of Tallahassee. US 27 is a direct route to Tallahassee from Central Florida. It also provides tourists access to the region’s famous horse farms and natural recreation areas. Due to its importance to regional mobility and the state economy, US 27 carries the Florida Intrastate Highway System (FIHS) designation. The FIHS is a system of limited access (freeways) and controlled access (at- grade arterials) roadways that allow for high-speed and high-volume traffic movement within the state.
