Former State Road 290, known locally as East Olive Road, is a major thoroughfare in Pensacola, Florida. It runs from County Road 95A (Old Palafox Road) in the Ensley community east to U.S. Route 90 (Scenic Highway) at Escambia Bay. The road serves as the primary east–west route through the Ferry Pass community.

Route description[edit]

State Road 290 begins at an intersection with County Road 95A (Old Palafox Road) in the Ensley neighborhood of Pensacola, Florida. The route progresses northeastward through a mix of residential and commercial neighborhoods as East Olive Road, crossing over a nearby freight line. At the intersection with Oak Forest Drive, State Road 290 becomes surrounded by housing complexes. This continues for a distance as the highway makes a slight bend to the east until Whitmere Drive, where State Road 290 enters a commercial neighborhood once again. Just after the change, the two-lane highway becomes five lanes and intersects with State Road 291 (Davis Highway) in Ferry Pass. State Road 290 continues eastward, passing a local strip mall and entering a residential neighborhood just east of Davis Highway.[2]

State Road 290 continues eastward through Ferry Pass as a two-lane highway, passing several more condominium complexes and a local track. After the intersection with Ridgefield Road, the highway gradually curves to the northeast, intersecting with the northern terminus of State Road 289 (North 9th Avenue). After State Road 289, State Road 290 becomes three lanes for a short distance, until reverting to two at Northpointe Boulevard. Continuing through a nearby residential neighborhood, this reverts to three lanes once again, curving once more to the intersection with U.S. Route 90 (Scenic Highway, State Road 10A) on the shore of Escambia Bay.[2]
