County Road 87A[edit]

County Road 87A
LocationSanta Rosa County

County Road 87A is one of three suffixed alternate county roads of SR 87, according to the Florida Department of Transportation. The first of which is in Milton beginning at the west end of the concurrency of US 90/SR 87 and CR 191. The road begins as Canal Street between US 90/SR 87 and Berryhill Road. The route then runs west along Berryhill road for one block until it turns north again at Alabama Street. CR 87A crosses Munson Highway (a leg of CR 191), and then the Blackwater Heritage State Rail Trail until it curves west onto North Avenue and ends at SR 87.

The second CR 87A is in Point Baker, north of the north end of the SR 89 overlap. It runs east from SR 87 as Langley Street into Whiting Field Naval Air Station, which bisects the road. The other end of CR 87A runs south from Whiting Field as East Gate Road and ends at CR 191 (Munson Highway) across from the intersection of Roeville Road.

The third CR 87A is Market Road near Berrydale, which runs east and west from State Road 4 to SR 87, far north of the northwest corner of the intersection of SRs 87 and 4.
