Interstate 65

Interstate 65 angles northeast from Perdido in Baldwin County to Evergreen in Conecuh County through vastly rural northwest Escambia County. Construction of the freeway commenced on the section between Alabama 21 at Martinville to Alabama 106 near Georgiana by 1961 with completion of that stretch by 1962. Extension of the route southwest to Baldwin County 47 (current Alabama 287) followed by 1964.

U.S. 29

U.S. 29 joins the Pensacola area with Flomaton and Brewton in Escambia County, acting as an important route to Interstate 65 from the Florida panhandle in conjunction with Alabama 113. The highway shares pavement with U.S. 31 from Flomaton east to the County seat and travels a vastly rural path from East Brewton into Conecuh National Forest. Much of the route follows the original alignment with the exception of now four-lane highway between Alabama 113 and Brewton. That alignment opened by 1969 north of Pollard, with expansion to four lanes by 1995 northeast of Pollard and west of Pollard by 2008.

U.S. 29 overtook then-Alabama 12 (renumbered to Alabama 15 by 1957) from Andalusia to Brewton and historic U.S. 331 south from Flomaton to Pensacola by 1934.

U.S. 31

Vastly replaced in a role as regional through route from Bay Minette to Montgomery, U.S. 31 still provides a through route for county interests in Escambia County, Alabama as well as one of a handful of routes southward to the Florida panhandle (in conjunction with Alabama 41 south from Brewton). Sharing 14.4 miles with U.S. 29 along a four or five-lane alignment, U.S. 31 bypasses the town of Pollard and McCall, both communities formerly along the U.S. highway mainline. A two-lane alignment leads north from downtown Brewton to Camp McMillan and U.S. 84 at Evergreen. The South Alabama Regional Planning Commission lists a Brewton bypass in their long range plans.

Alabama 21

Alabama 21 continues Florida 97 north through Atmore to Exit 57 of Interstate 65 near the Wind Creek Casino complex. Continuing north, the state route exits Escambia County at Little River State Forest to Uriah. Historically the highway replaced Alabama 11 from the Florida state line to Monroeville until 1958. The highway doubled as Alabama 209 in 1957.

Guides:

Alabama 41

Florida 87 becomes Alabama 41 at Dixonville and the state line. The route joins Brewton with Milton and the Florida Coast to the south and Interstate 65 (Exit 77) and Repton in Conecuh County to the north. The state route replaced Alabama 93 between the state line and U.S. 84 by 1958.

Guides:

Alabama 113

Alabama 113 came into existence by 1948 along the U.S. 29 alignment between U.S. 31 in Flomaton and Century, Florida. An extension of that short route followed by 1979, leading the freeway north to the Barnett Crossroads interchange of Interstate 65. The state route follows a combination of U.S. 29 along Flomaton Boulevard and U.S. 29 & 31 from their merge point to Exit 69.

Escambia County 4 continues County Road 22 east of U.S. 29 along Ridge Road. Ridge Road is a 2004 realignment of CR-4 leading south from U.S. 29 to Bradley Road, the original path of County Road 4. Photo taken 05/03/09.
County Road 4 was realigned in part due to the Conecuh River. Bradley Road hugged the western banks of the waterway, north of the Conecuh River bridge. The new alignment spans the river via the Parker Bridge to the east and exits the flood plain much sooner than Bradley Road. Photo taken 05/03/09.
