Beginning from Alabama State Route 182 at the state line, State Road 292 travels along Perdido Key eastward by a number of condominium towers and through Perdido Key State Park before turning north to the 1974-built Theo Baars Bridge across the Intracoastal Waterway to the Escambia County mainland. SR 292 becomes Sorrento Road north of Perdido Key by Big Lagoon State Park to Blue Angel Parkway (SR 173). Gulf Beach Highway continues the road eastward by a network of residential streets along Bayou Grande into unincorporated Warrington.
Barrancas Avenue veers northeast from Navy Boulevard (SR 295) as a multi-lane arterial, carrying SR 292 into Pensacola. A new high-level bridge was constructed for SR 292 across Bayou Chico in 1998, realigning Barrancas Avenue away from a draw span over the water to the southeast. Pace Boulevard is the path of SR 292 north from Barrancas Avenue to its north end at U.S. 29 near Brent. This includes a nine block overlap with U.S. 98 between Garden and Cerventes Streets in the city.
