Florida State Road 295 forms a ring around southwest Pensacola. The four to six lane route loops northward from the Main Gate to Pensacola Naval Air Station through Warrington to West Pensacola and Ninth Avenue in the city. This includes a short expressway segment (New Warrington Spur) at U.S. 90 and SR 727 (Fairfield Drive). Completed in 1973, this controlled access highway has an overpass above SR 298 (Lillian Highway), a parclo interchange with U.S. 90, and a wye interchange with SR 727.

The expressway portion of SR 295 combines with Fairfield Drive, which SR 295 follows for the remainder of its course to Pensacola. The arterial provides the northernmost third of a route between Interstate 110 and the Naval Air Station. East of I-110 (Exit 4), SR 295 ends at SR 289 (9th Street), with Fairfield Drive continuing northeast to 12th Avenue at Pensacola International Airport (PNS).

A portion of New Warrington Road bypassed by the New Warrington Spur expressway was retained as a segment of State Road 295. This 0.482 mile section of SR 295 links the expressway with SR 298 (Lillian Highway) west while also providing the missing movements to U.S. 90 (Mobile Highway) from the adjacent partial interchange.

New Warrington Spur consists of a 1.34 mile expressway linking Fairfield Drive (SR 727) with New Warrington Road (SR 295) at West Pensacola. The controlled access highway carries two lanes northbound, and one continuous lane southbound. The speed limit is only 40 miles per hour.

SR 291 (Davis Highway) runs along the northbound side of Interstate 110 from SR 295 to SR 296 (Brent Lane). The tight quarters resulted in a narrow on-ramp squeezing onto the freeway between the two roadways to serve all movements from SR 295. 2002-09 widening of I-110 included the interchange upgrade, which eliminated the left turn onto I-110 north and expanded the movement onto SR 291 north to two turn lanes. 02/23/10
