State Road 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. 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 (Florida 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.
