is a three-quarter, non-limited-access beltway
around the western, southern and eastern sides of Tallahassee, Florida
Designated as State Road 263 on its western half and US 319 on its eastern half, Capital Circle is one of the most important routes in the Tallahassee area, providing a bypass of the city as well as access to Tallahassee Regional Airport and the State Office Complex in Southwood.
Built as a surface road, the route has suffered the typical fate of non-limited-access bypasses (such as Semoran Boulevard in Orlando, becoming a magnet for strip malls and becoming congested with heavy traffic, aggravated by the fact that most of the road is only two lanes. The northeastern part of Capital Circle was recently upgraded to six lanes, and six- and four-laning of the southeastern and central western parts of the route is ongoing.
