County Road 191

Home » Guides » Florida » County Road 191

Exclusive to Santa Rosa County in Northwest Florida, County Road 191 fans outward from the county seat of Milton among four separate branches. The southern 10.91-mile branch leads away from Downtown Milton along Canal and Henry Streets to the unincorporated town of Bagdad and Garcon Point Road south to I-10 and Florida 281 Toll near Dickerson City. This portion originally extended all the way to Garcon Point, until the Garcon Point Bridge, along with the southward extension of SR 281 (Avalon Boulevard), opened to traffic. As such, an unsigned 1.23-mile portion of CR 191 remains along Garcon Point Road west of SR 281 to Hernandez Point.

Broad Street in Milton, between U.S. 90 & Florida 87 (Caroline Street) and Munson Highway, constitutes a 0.75-mile segment of CR 191 serving Downtown. Munson Highway north from Florida 87 (Stewart Street) in Milton to the Alabama state line near McLellan, represents the longest component of CR 191, totaling 30.24 miles. The bulk of Munson Highway traverses Blackwater State Forest.

This leaves the 9.45-mile long east-west section of Santa Rosa County 191 along both Magnolia Street in Milton and Willard Norris Road to CR 197 (Chumuckla Highway) near Wallace.
