Routed almost entirely within Jefferson County, State Road 59 runs 25.91 miles north from U.S. 98 east of Newport to U.S. 90 west of Monticello. Following Gamble Road, SR 59 joins the settlement of Wacissa with the unincorporated community of Lloyd and Interstate 10 at Exit 217.
There are also two branches of County Road 59. The southern segment on Lighthouse Road spurs 10.24 miles south from U.S. 98 at Newport to Plum Orchard, St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge and St. Marks Lighthouse on Appalachee Bay. The north section travels 11.45 miles along Veterans Memorial Drive from U.S. 90 to Concord, Miccosukee, and Georgia State Route 122 in rural eastern Leon County.
The mileage sign for Lloyd posted north of U.S. 27 was replaced with a street blade by 2009.
SR 59 crosses into Leon County just ahead of U.S. 90 (Mahan Drive) and CR 142 (Old Magnolia Road).
