State Road 399 previously connected U.S. 98 at Gulf Breeze with Pensacola Beach and Via De Luna Drive east to Gulf Islands National Seashore and Navarre. A jurisdictional shift from state to county maintenance occurred with the Bob Sikes Bridge across Santa Rosa Sound and portions of Pensacola Beach Boulevard, the connecting roadway, in 1999. This left just 0.319 miles of SR 399 in the system, which entails the trumpet interchange with U.S. 98 and the immediate approach to the toll bridge. The toll bridge ($1.00 per passenger vehicle) is one of two crossings from the mainland to Santa Rosa Island.
Historical look at the southbound beginning of Florida 399 at the foot of the Navarre Beach Causeway. Drivers crossing Santa Rosa Sound first entered a small toll plaza, where tolls were charged at a rate of $1.00 per passenger vehicle, before they spanned the Intracoastal Waterway.

Further east at Navarre Beach, State Road 399 became County Road 399 after tolls were removed from the Navarre Beach Bridge on July 1, 2004. This coincided with a county takeover of the span from the state. State Road 399 shields were still in place until 2006.
