Chase Street is an east-west street in downtown Pensacola. Its westernmost terminus is at S Street, but is interrupted for one block between P Street and Pace Boulevard and for two blocks between I and G Streets. Chase Street becomes one-way (east) at Devilliers Street. At Tarragona Street it briefly joins an I-110 overpass, then takes US 98 from Ninth Avenue to its eastern terminus at Bayfront Parkway.

A sign at acknowledging Chase Street's historical namesake

Chase Street is named for Colonel William H. Chase, the construction engineer for Forts McRee, Barrancas, Redoubt and Pickens between 1828-1854, who captured the Navy Yard (ironically, some of the same fortresses he had engineered) for Confederate forces in January, 1861.
