In the mid-1970s, the Florida Department of Transportation (formerly the State Road Department) started a sequence of events that eventually resulted in the transferral of hundred of miles of roadway from State of Florida maintenance to county control. The first step was the addition of an "S-" or "C-" prefix onto the original FDOT designation ("S" represented "secondary"; "C" represented "county"). State Road signs started disappearing from the "C" roads and were replaced by blue pentagonal county road signs in the early 1980s; the transition of "S" roads to county control took a bit longer (some state road signs with S-prefixes remain standing two decades after the transfer to county control). Many roads that were decommissioned in later years skipped the prefix step.
While the transition occurred throughout the State of Florida, the area most dramatically affected by this process was Florida south of State Road 70 (SR 70) (which runs from Bradenton to Fort Pierce). While other state roads had portions turned into county control (for example, SR 29, SR 31, SR 78, SR 707, SR 780, SR 880, SR 884, and SR 951), entire state roads in southern Florida disappeared from the FDOT lists. Many decommissioned roads in the Treasure Coast and Space Coast occurred in sparsely-populated areas, including orange groves and wetlands.

Commercially prepared road maps still indicate incorrectly that CR 5A is still a State Road (when it was, it was not signed as such). Some maps even suggest that it includes White Street between US 1 and Flagler Street.

After I-10, the road branches off to South Street and runs east until joining SR 73, where it turns north until the intersection with US 90. Here SR 73 turns west, and CR 167 joins SR 166, until it turns onto "Old US Road" and runs north toward the Alabama State Line.

The southern half of CR 905 was part of the Overseas Highway from 1938 until 1944 (when a fire damaged Card Sound Bridge). Old "State Road S-905" signs are still posted on the edge of the road.
- State Road 905A (now County Road 905A) is the Card Sound Bridge and Card Sound Road between the bridge and CR 905 (SR 905A used to extend northward to an intersection with US 1 near Florida City, but Miami-Dade County doesn't sign its county roads and rarely designates them as "County Road ###"). As late as 2005, an old "State Road S-905A" was still posted near the intersection with CR 905.
SR 939, SR 939A, and SR 939B
- State Road 939 (now County Road 939): locally known as Sugarloaf Boulevard and Old State Road, CR 939 forms a loop south of US 1 on Sugarloaf Key. The western terminus is in Perky; the road follows the contour of the island as it turns around Upper Sugarloaf Sound.
