Alabama 14 east
Alabama 14 eastbound, as it leaves the Interstate 20/59 interchange. A U.S. 43 trailblazer is posted with the eastbound reassurance shield. Three miles separate the town of Eutaw with the freeway. Photo taken 08/10/02.
Entering the town of Eutaw, Alabama 14 makes a series of turns on residential streets before entering the downtown area. This shield is posted at the first right turn Alabama 14 makes. Continuing straight will take motorists one block north of Alabama 14. Photo taken 08/10/02.
Traffic light at the intersection of Alabama 14 east with U.S. 11. The two share one block of pavement through the downtown square area. Photo taken 08/10/02.
One block to the east of the U.S. 11/Alabama 14 initial encounter, is the parting of ways. However, neither highway is yet to take on solo status, as U.S. 43 enters the fold. The important corridor through Alabama's Black Belt (an agricultural region that derives its name from a dark and rich soil that dominates the landscape) enters the intersection from the northeast with U.S. 11, turning to the right with Alabama 14 east for its southward push. Photo taken 08/10/02.

Drifting to the southeast on Alabama 14, is the Black Warrior River. The waterway sees its origins to the north at Bankhead Lake (west of Birmingham), flowing southward to Lake Demopolis and ultimately the Tombigbee River. This pair of photographs shows the only river crossing between Interstate 20-59 at Tuscaloosa and U.S. 43 at Demopolis. The concrete structure features sweeping views of the watershed and a smooth ride for the state highway. The date stamp on the bridge indicates that this infrastructure was completed in 1994. Photos taken 08/10/02.

U.S. 43 north & Alabama 14 west split at U.S. 11 in the Greene County seat of Eutaw. U.S. 11 and 43 jointly travel northeast 34 miles to Downtown Tuscaloosa. Alabama 14 leaves its one-mile overlap with U.S. 43 to combine with U.S. 11 south. Photo taken 08/10/02.
One block removed from U.S. 43, Alabama 43 quickly departs U.S. 11 toward Interstate 20-59 Exit 40 and the village of Clinton. U.S. 11 southbound meanwhile travels 11 miles to the village of Boligee, eventually ending up at the town of Livingston in Sumter county. Photo taken 08/10/02.
