Interstate 10 passes under County Road 4 (Antioch Road) in west Crestview. Photo taken 11/23/08.
Eglin Air Force Base separates coastal Okaloosa County from Crestview, the county seat, and the rural northern half. County Roads generally exist north of Interstate 10 in a partially signed fashion. County Roads in Niceville and Destin are all unsigned with the exception of County Road 2378 (which officially exists as County Road 30). County Roads are numbered between the 100 and 300 series to coincide with State Roads 10 and 30. A few exceptions exist in the form of County Road 602 and three unsigned urban routes in Crestview.
Construction of PJ Adams Parkway replaced County Road 4 (Antioch Road) eastward from near Williams Branch. This resulted in 2.583 miles of Antioch Road, from Garrett Pit Road east to State Road 85, to be turned back in 2011.
Okaloosa County 4 west
Okaloosa County 4 (Antioch Road) meets U.S. 90 (James Lee Boulevard) west of Crestview. Note the oddly shaped Florida 90 shield used. Not only is the shield unusual for a state road, but it is erroneous in that it should display U.S. 90 instead of Florida 90. Photo taken 11/23/08.
P.J. Adams Parkway (former County Road 4) east
P.J. Adams Parkway overtakes Okaloosa County 4 from Antioch Road east to Florida 85 (Ferdon Boulevard) through south Crestview. Traffic lights hang above the intersection of Northview Drive and Wildhorse Drive, subdivision entrances both north and south. Photo taken 11/23/08.
P.J. Adams Parkway ends at Florida 85 (Ferdon Boulevard) 0.8 miles north of Okaloosa County 4's former east end. Photo taken 11/23/08.
Okaloosa County 4B
Okaloosa County 4B, like County Road 4A north of Baker, acts as a cutoff. Following Charlie Day Road for 1.21 miles, CR 4B links County Road 189 (Galliver Cutoff) to the west with State Road 4 to the east in a rural area west of Crestview.

Okaloosa County 85A
Two segments of County Road 85A remain in service within Okaloosa County. The northern most branch follows an old portion of SR 85 along 2nd Avenue for 1.26 miles within the city of Laurel Hill. An unsigned CR 85A follows Bill Lundy Road northwest 4.14 miles, from SR 85 near Garden City, to Clear Springs.
A 4.43-mile stretch of Okaloosa County 85A, from the Alabama state line east on New Ebenezer Road to 3rd Avenue in Laurel Hill, was removed from the system after 2010. Cinco Bayou and Fort Walton Beach was home to another CR 85A along Yacht Club Road, between SR 189 (Beal Parkway) and Ferry Road. Signage for the west end remained in place to 2013.
