State Road 12

Home » Guides » Florida » State Road 12

Florida State Road 12 branches northeast from SR 20 at Bristol to Greensboro and U.S. 90 south of Gretna. Combining with U.S. 90 across the city of Quincy, SR 12 continues east to U.S. 27 at Havana. The state road measures 42.06 miles overall. County Road 12 extends 16.81 miles east from U.S. 27 to Concord and U.S. 319 at Iamonia in northeastern Leon County.

The southern branch of County Road 12 forms a 21.40 mile long loop north from SR 65 at Wilma in Apalachicola National Forest to Orange and SR 20 in Bristol.

Through Quincy, SR 12 was realigned to bypass the Quincy Historic District along an extended overlap with U.S. 90 east to the SR 269 / Quincy Bypass north. 1.538 miles of SR 12 along Madison Street and King Street west of SR 269 was relinquished by the state in 2017.1 Construction on the 1.6 mile long Quincy Bypass ran from October 26, 2012 until Summer 2014.2

Historically the alignment of State Road 12 east from King Street in Quincy to SR 159 in Havana was a part of U.S. 90. By 1949 State Road 10 was built from Quincy southeast to Santa Clara and Midway while U.S. 90 overlapped with U.S. 27 south from Havana into Tallahassee. U.S. 90 shifted south from SR 12 to its present day alignment in 1951.
