Mississippi 613 provides one of two routes connecting Moss Point and Pascagoula with points north including Lucedale, the U.S. 98 corridor, and the U.S. 45 corridor. Generally a rural route outside of Moss Point, the two-lane highway forms a 34-mile loop east of Mississippi 63 through eastern Jackson and George Counties. The state route generally parallels the Mississippi Export (MSE) Railroad north to Big Point, Hurley, Agricola.

Through Pascagoula, Mississippi 613 angles northeast along Telephone Road from U.S. 90 (Denny Avenue) east of Downtown. The five-lane boulevard curves northward to become Main Street through Moss Point. The state route lines a commercial strip just west of the city center north to the high level bridge across the Escatawpa River between Beardslee and Robertson Lakes. A diamond interchange links Mississippi 613 with I-10, and the state route extends north with at least three lanes another 1.75 miles to Knowles Avenue.

Historically, the alignment of MS 613 was the previous route for MS 63. MS 63 was realigned westward from Big Point, Hurley and Agricola by 1960, with MS 613 designated northward from their meeting outside Moss Point to U.S. 98 in Lucedale. With a new alignment built for MS 63 south into Moss Point, MS 613 was extended south over the former MS 63 to Pascagoula by 1981.
