State Highway 98 is a New Zealand State Highway connecting the settlements of Lorneville (on State Highway 6 just north of Invercargill) and Dacre (on State Highway 1) in the Southland region. Also known as Lorne Dacre Road, the highway was gazetted in 1997 and provides an indirect northern bypass of the city of Invercargill. The road is very flat and passes through primarily prime agricultural land. One locality, Rakahouka, lies halfway along the route.[1]

Beyond Lorneville, SH 98 is renumbered as State Highway 99 and becomes part of the Southern Scenic Route as it continues towards Wallacetown and Riverton.
