8th Avenue or Eighth Avenue is a two-lane avenue traversing Old East Hill and Eastside. Eighth Avenue's southern terminus is at a dead-end just south of Wright Street in downtown Pensacola; from there it runs northerly uninterrupted to Cross Street. A small section of road, running northerly from Hart Drive in the Woodland Heights neighborhood, is also signed 8th Avenue. The main segment of the thoroughfare was formerly called Cevallos Street, a name which now only applies to the section of the street south of Romana Street.
