State Road 298 (SR 298), known locally as Lillian Highway, is a mostly east–west thoroughfare in Pensacola, Florida. It runs from its intersection with U.S. Highway 98 and Dog Track Road, skirting Perdido Bay on its way east to its terminus at U.S. Highway 90 (Cervantes Street). For a short stretch near its terminus, SR 298 runs along New Warrington Road. It serves as a major route through the communities of Myrtle Grove and West Pensacola.

In spite of the fact that it intersects US 98, the designation of SR 298 is not meant to imply that it is an auxiliary route of US 98.

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Escambia County.

State Road 298A
Location: Escambia County

State Road 298 Alternate (SR 298A, also known as West Jackson Street) is a former residential state highway in Escambia County, within the U.S. state of Florida. It was an alternate route to SR 298 in case there was a traffic accident on US 90/US 98 or any one of the roads intersecting SR 298. It was approximately 6 miles (9.7 km) long, passing the western suburbs, Myrtle Grove, West Pensacola, and Brownsville before ending at US 29 in Downtown Pensacola. Oddly, it was less than 1 mile (1.6 km) south of a major road. One of them is US 90. The entire road was only 2 lanes wide. The western terminus was at an intersection with SR 727, 2 blocks south of SR 298. Its eastern terminus was at an intersection with US 29 in Pensacola.
