Interstate 110 consists of a 6.39-mile spur from Interstate 10 to downtown Pensacola. The freeway provides connections to U.S. 98 across Pensacola Bay to Gulf Breeze and the Emerald Coast. Interstate 110 varies between a set of two-lane viaducts to the south and a six-lane freeway to the north. Speed limits are set at 55 miles per hour.
Construction between 2003 and 2009 upgraded the freeway in two separate projects. The northern project rebuilt the trumpet interchange with Interstate 10 to include new flyovers, better connecting Interstate 110 with Florida 291 (Davis Highway) to the east. This work coincided with a six-lane project of Interstate 10 between Exit 10 (U.S. 29) and 13 (Davis Highway).
Work along Interstate 110 between Interstate 10 and the viaducts at Maxwell and Jordan Streets rebuilt the freeway to six overall lanes, redesigned Exit 4 from a standard diamond into a partial-cloverleaf interchange, and extended Exit 5 to entail a split-diamond interchange with both Florida 296 (Brent Lane) and Airport Boulevard.
Interstate 110 is the only Interstate in the state of Florida to not undergo exit renumbering in 2002. The change from sequential to mileage based figures was deemed cost ineffective as the numbers are only one mile off per exit.

||Northbound Tarragona Street at Chase Street outside downtown Pensacola. Chase Street flows eastbound through Pensacola as a secondary arterial west of Interstate 110 and a primary arterial route east of Interstate 110. Railroad tracks line Tarragona Street from the Palafox Pier northward. Photo taken 12/20/03. |
|Chase Street rises to pass over Alcaniz Street (U.S. 98 Business) ahead of Pensacola Civic Center. Interstate 110 begins as a flyover ramp on the left. A new overhead replaced the U.S. 98 panel in 2005. Hurricane winds damaged the Interstate 110 panel and it was not replaced until 2011. Photo taken 12/20/03. Second photo taken 06/19/05. Third photo taken 10/22/11. |
|Interstate 110 and U.S. 98 shields posted at the gore point of the Chase Street on-ramp of the Pensacola freeway spur. Interstate 110 receives no control city in the northbound direction.|
The shield assembly was replaced in 2005 and has faded quite a bit since then. Photo taken 12/20/03. Second photo taken 05/14/10.
