State Route 101 is a north–south route in the northwestern part of the state. The southern terminus of the route is at its junction with the former route of State Route 24 west of Moulton. The route continues northward to State Route 227.

Route description[edit]

State Route 101 is 39 miles (63 km) long. It travels through rural areas of Lawrence and Lauderdale Counties, and is aligned along a two-lane route.

Until 1997, the southern terminus of State Route 101 was at its junction with State Route 24.[1] When State Route 24 was realigned along a route slightly north of its original placement as part of the construction of Corridor V, State Route 101’s southern terminus was not truncated.

State Route 101 is one of two Alabama state routes whose northern terminus is at Tennessee State Route 227.
