U.S. 80 splits from the Interstate 20 corridor at Cuba and travels over central Alabama east to Demopolis, Montgomery and Phenix City. All of the route between Cuba and Montgomery is four laned, with the exception through Uniontown in Perry County and along a portion of the Selma bypass. U.S. 80 Business follows the old alignment through Selma, including the Edmund Pettus Bridge over the Alabama River.
U.S. 80 and Interstate 85 parallel each other east to Shorter and Tuskegee, where U.S. 29 ties in from the south. U.S. 29 part ways with U.S. 80 to accompany the I-85 corridor northeast to Auburn, Opelika and Atlanta while U.S. 80 diverges to the south along a rural, two-lane highway to Ladonia, and a five-lane boulevard east into Phenix City. Turning north with U.S. 280, U.S. 80 shifts onto a freeway bypass across the north side of Phenix City into Columbus, Georgia.
