Alabama 52 begins its southeastern Alabama journey southwest of the Geneva County seat of Geneva (pop. 4,388). The highway begins as Okaloosa County 185 (former Florida 185) to the northeast of De Funiak Springs, Florida. From there a five mile routing to Alabama 196 bring the state highway into Geneva. Alabama 52 continues from that community eastward to Hartford (pop. 2,369), Slocomb (pop. 2,052), and Malvern (pop. 1,215) before arriving at the Dothan belt line. A four mile stretch from near the Geneva/Houston County line to U.S. 231 is now four-laned. At Dothan the highway bypasses the city to the south, departing to Webb (pop. 1,298) and the Georgia state line near Columbia (pop. 804). Counties: Geneva, Houston

The western terminus of Alabama 52 in downtown Opp at U.S. 331. Traffic turning onto U.S. 331 northbound will encounter U.S. 84 in a short distance as the two highways overlap through downtown. Photo taken 11/25/01.

Alabama 66 acts as a connector between Alabama 28 and 5 between Consul and Safford. The route totals a scant nine miles, and serves as part of a greater route between Linden and Selma.

Counties: Marengo, Dallas

An end shield is posted at the eastern terminus with Alabama 22 in the village of Safford. Traffic turning to the left (east), will intersect the eastbound beginning of Alabama 22 in one mile. Photo taken 08/10/02.

Southern terminus can be found at Alabama 117 in downtown Jackson (pop. 5419), the county seat for Clarke County. The state highway takes a north and northeasterly path throughout the Black Belt of Alabama before terminating with U.S. 431 at Guntersville. Counties: Clarke, Marengo, Hale, Tuscaloosa, Walker, Cullman, Marshall

The southern terminus of Alabama 69 occurs at Alabama 117 (former U.S. 43) just north of downtown Jackson. Jackson is a larger town in southwestern Alabama, with a pervasive street grid. The downtown core however, appears to be on the proverbial financial straights, as most rural area towns in Alabama are. However, industrial areas to the south and southeast of downtown are offering promising hope, with an overall widening of Alabama 117 a result of the increasing business and associated trucking traffic. Photo taken 02/10/02.

24 miles consist of Alabama 83 between the terminus at U.S. 31/84 in Evergreen to Alabama 47 at Midway. Evergreen (pop. 3630), is another town in a state of decline within Alabama. Counties: Conecuh, Monroe

The southern terminus of Alabama 83 occurs at the U.S. 31/84 duplex within the town of Evergreen. Evergreen, like so many other small towns in Alabama, does not appear to be doing well with its economy and infrastructure. To the north, Alabama 83 intersects Interstate 65 at an interchange (two miles), with an overall 26 mile conclusion at Midway. Photo taken 04/21/01.

Alabama 124 travels 11 miles between U.S. 78 to Alabama 69. The state highway sees the eastern terminus of Alabama 102 in the village of Towney along the way. Counties: Walker

Alabama 124 draws to a close at U.S. 78 near the new Interstate 22 freeway east of Carbon Hill. The state highway parallels Future Interstate 22 from this intersection eastward to Alabama 69, just south of the Exit 61 interchange of U.S. 78. Photo taken 09/25/03.

Rural route traveling 32 miles between Coffeeville at U.S. 84 northeastward to U.S. 43 at Thomasville. Counties: Clark

End Alabama 154 shield at U.S. 43 in Thomasville. A non-standard font is in use on the state highway shield. U.S. 43 throughout this stretch is heavily commercialized with fast food restaurants and gas stations. Photo taken 08/10/02.

Seven miles is all that constitutes this short state highway as it links Alabama 17 at Jachin with Alabama 14 at Pennington in pine forest county. Counties: Choctaw

The western terminus of Alabama 156 occurs at its intersection with Alabama 17 in the community of Jachin. An end shield is in place for the otherwise rural junction. Just north of this intersection on Alabama 17 is Choctaw County 32, an east-west road that continues westward to Alabama 10 near the Mississippi State line. These two routes give an alternate path to Linden, the Marengo County seat, from the west. Photo taken 08/10/02.

Five mile connector between Alabama 5 and Alabama 183 outside of Marion near the Talladega National Forest. Counties: Perry

The darkness of near sunset conditions settle in on the northern terminus of the short state highway. In the background is Alabama 5, as it travels out of the Marion vicinity. To the right is the community of Heilberger and Talladega National Forest. Photo taken 08/10/02.

Alabama 199 travels ten miles from Alabama 81 and Tuskegee north to Alabama 14 near Liberty City. It crosses over Interstate 85 with no connection. Counties: Macon

The first Alabama 199 shield is posted just to the west of the terminus intersection with Alabama 81. This point is approximately three miles north of the Macon County seat of Tuskegee. There is no end shield posted in the southbound direction. Photo taken 08/22/03.

Alabama 229 begins at Interstate 85 near Milsted and travels 21 miles north to its conclusion at Alabama 63. The state highway serves the communities of Tallassee (pop. 4,934), Burlington, Kent, and Red Hill in Elmore County. Counties: Macon, Elmore

First northbound Alabama 229 shield, just past the Interstate 85 interchange for Exit 26. The primary function of the 21 mile state highway is to connect the Interstate with Tallassee. Similar to Alabama 49, the state highway ends at an Interstate. The is a standard practice in the state of Alabama, with Alabama 113 terminating at Interstate 65 in Escambia County as another example. Photo taken 04/21/01.

15 miles constitute Alabama 263 between Alabama 185 and 21. The north-south route travels between Greenville (pop. 7,228) and Braggs. Counties: Butler, Lowndes

An end shield is posted at the southern terminus of Alabama 263. Here Alabama 185 turns from the northeast to the southeast, traveling to Interstate 65 Exit 130 and the Butler Couny seat of Greenville. To the north Alabama 185 reaches Fort Deposit (pop. 1,270) in ten miles. Photo taken 10/01/03.
