Escambia County 95A

Home » Guides » Florida » Escambia County 95A

Two portions of County Road 95A are signed in Escambia County. Both represent old alignments of U.S. 29, paralleling the current four-lane route to the east. The southern segment follows North Palafox Street north from where U.S. 29 joins Pensacola Boulevard at Brent to Ensley, Gonzalez and Cantonment.

The northern component of County Road 95A loops 9.11 miles east from U.S. 29 through Cottage Hill, Quintette and Molino. This stretch is vastly more rural than its southern counterpart.

County Road 95A north - Old Palafox Street
Just north of the I-10 under crossing, County Road 95A (Palafox Street) intersects the west end of Olive Road. Olive Road was originally a part of State Road 290 until a mileage swap turned the route over to the county. Now designated as County Road 290, signs are only posted on intersecting state roads. Photo taken 03/20/12.
Signs for SR 290 were removed by fall 2012. The 5.47-mile route of CR 290 lines Olive Road east from Ensley to Ferry Pass and U.S. 90 (Scenic Highway) off Macky Bay. Photo taken 09/30/12.
Continuing north from CR 290, County Road 95A (North Palafox Street) enters the Ensley community. Photo taken 03/20/12.
