SR C-229 sign still standing in 2012

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.

Some state road numbers (like SR 609) were reused after decommissioning. Lettered state road numbers (like SR 15A) are sometimes used for several discontinuous sections of state roads.

  • State Road 167 (now County Road 2301 and County Road 167) – two sections: one from US 231 in Bayou George north of Panama City to SR 20 west of Fountain, now CR 2301; another from US 231 in Betts through the northwest corner of Calhoun County then into Jackson County where it eventually joins SR 267 south of Marianna. 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.
