Home » Guides » Florida » County Road 191A

Two branches of County Road 191A remain in service in Santa Rosa County. The northern section follows Old Bagdad Highway, a historic alignment of U.S. 90, between State Road 281 (Avalon Boulevard) / U.S. 90 and County Road 191 (Forsyth Street) at Bagdad. The southern section forms an L-shaped route 2.04 miles from U.S. 98 (Gulf Breeze Parkway) south to Oriole Beach and west along Bay Street. The Bay Street portion is unsigned.

Two additional segments retain signage but are no longer county highways. Diamond Street east from U.S. 98 at Floridatown is one former route while Mulat Road southwest from SR 281 (Avalon Boulevard) to Mulat is the other.
