One of four "misnumbered" State Road 7## highways in the Pensacola area, State Road 727 (SR 727) is a four-mile-long highway that is locally known as West Fairfield Drive and South Fairfield Drive. Its southern terminus is at an intersection with State Road 292 (Gulf Beach Highway); the eastern terminus is an intersection with New Warrington Road (SR 295) in West Pensacola. From the eastern terminus, Fairfield Drive continues eastward with the SR 295 designation until Ninth Avenue (SR 289) in Pensacola. Until the mid-1990s, the route was designated State Road 289A.

Like SR 295 and the nearby SR 296, SR 298, and SR 742, State Road 727 is primarily a bypass route for Pensacola. Motorists traveling near the Gulf of Mexico shore west of Pensacola often use Fairfield Road to avoid the downtown section and continue eastward via Interstate 110 (SR 8A) to Interstate 10 (SR 8) and then crossing Escambia Bay on the Interstate highway.

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Escambia County.
