County roads in Florida

The following is a list of county roads in Collier County, Florida. All county roads are maintained by the county in which they reside, however not all of them are marked with standard MUTCD approved county road shields.

Most of county roads in Collier County were formerly state roads. In the mid 1970s, the Florida Department of Transportation (formerly the State Road Department) downgraded a number of the state roads to secondary state roads. On January 5, 1976, many of the roads were also renumbered to have a more streamlined numbering system.[1][2][3] By the mid 1980s, the secondary state roads were turned over to county control.

County Road 29[edit]

County Road 29
Location ChokoloskeeCarnestown
Length 13 mi[4] (21 km)

County Road 29, once part of State Road 29 prior to the 1980s,[3] is a 13-mile route connecting Everglades City and Chokoloskee Island with the Tamiami Trail in Carnestown.

The southern terminus of CR 29 is in Chokoloskee, where it known as Smallwood Avenue (named for Ted Smallwood, who opened the areas historic general store which is now a museum). From Chokoloksee, CR 29 crosses a causeway across Chokoloskee Bay, which was built in 1956, to Everglades City.[5]

In Everglades City, CR 29 is known as Copeland Avenue in the southern half of the town. Copeland Avenue is named for David Graham Copeland, who worked closely with Barron Collier in the development of Everglades City.[6]

Just north of Everglades Airpark, CR 29 encounters a roundabout, where it turns east along Broadway towards the former Atlantic Coast Line Railroad depot. It then turns north along Collier Avenue, where it continues out of the city and terminating at U.S. Route 41 in Carnestown.

County Road 31[edit]

County Road 31
Location East NaplesNorth Naples
Length 10.1 mi[8] (16.3 km)

County Road 31 is one of the Naples area’s major north-south corridors. It is known as Airport-Pulling Road, which runs from US 41 in East Naples to CR 846 (Immokalee Road) in North Naples. Originally known as Airport Road due to its proximity to Naples Municipal Airport, the name was amended to honor John Pulling, Sr. who was one of Collier County’s major land investors.[9]

Prior to the 1976 renumbering, the current CR 31 was known as State Road 31 north of the current Golden Gate Parkway. Between Golden Gate Parkway and Radio Road, it was part of SR 951, and SR 858 from Radio Road south.[2] In the mid 1970s, many of the areas designations were changed, and the current Airport-Pulling Road became SR 31 in its entirety. SR 31 also extended south past US 41 along Bayshore Drive. The route was relinquished to county control in the 1980s.[3]

When CR 31 was part of State Road 31, it was a discontinuous route, for there was (and still is) a State Road 31 just to the north running from Fort Myers Shores to Arcadia.

Goodlette-Frank Road runs along a route that historically served as the Naples area’s railroad corridor. The railroad existed from 1927 to 1979.
