Alabama 177 loops east from U.S. 43 into Jackson, the county seat of Clarke County. The route was four-laned from the southern terminus to industrial areas on the Tombigbee River to accommodate increasing truck traffic. Alabama 69 ends at Alabama 177 and Downtown Jackson.
Alabama 177 represents the original routing of U.S. 43, which now bypasses the city to the northwest on a four-lane alignment.
