There are three segments of County Road 87A signed in Santa Rosa County. The 2.99-mile long northern portion provides a cutoff between Florida 4 and Florida 87 along Market Road east of Jay. The southern stretch of CR 87A consists of two disjointed routes serving Naval Air Station Whiting Field. One 0.99-mile section joins Florida 87 and Milton with the west gate to the base via Langley Street while East Gate Road provides access to the facility north 3.13 miles from County Road 191 at Roeville.
