Locally known as Congress Avenue, State Road 807 is a 4.29-mile-long north–south highway serving central Palm Beach County from an intersection with Lake Worth Road (SR 802) just south of Palm Springs, north to its northern terminus is an interchange with Southern Boulevard (US 98-SR 80) and Australian Avenue (Palm Beach County Road 704A) adjacent to Palm Beach International Airport. Congress Avenue is a popular commuting alternative to the oft-congested Interstate 95 and similarly-crowded US 1 (State Roads 5 and 805) in eastern Palm Beach County.

Route description

State Road 807 begins at the intersection of SR 802 (Lake Worth Road) at the northwestern end of a campus of Palm Beach Community College, with SR 807 taking Congress Avenue north through a major commercial area for its entire route. It enters Palm Springs, and intersects SR 882 (Forest Hill Boulevard), before exiting Palm Springs and entering West Palm Beach, clipping the western corner of Glen Ridge at its northern terminus at the interchange with U.S. 98/SR 80, where the road continues as Palm Beach County Road 704A.[2]

Congress Avenue proceeds another 15.6 miles (25.1 km) southward as Palm Beach County Road 807, passing through the Palm Beach County Park Airport, across the street from Atlantis at an intersection with Lantana Road (SR 812); golf courses in Atlantis, Boynton Beach, Golf, Delray Beach, and Boca Raton; and T-Rex Technology Center at Boca Raton at Yamato Road, less than a mile from Boca Raton Airport (accessed via nearby Northwest Spanish River Boulevard/SR 800), ending at the historical southern terminus of SR 807, an intersection with Yamato Road (SR 794) in Boca Raton.

Major junctions

The entire route is located in Palm Beach County.
