State Route 40 is a 21-mile-long (34 km) route in the northeastern part of the state. The western terminus of the route is at its junction with State Route 35 near Scottsboro. The eastern terminus of the route is at its junction with State Route 117 at Hammondville, just north of the junction of State Route 117 with Interstate 59.

Route description[edit]

From its origin south of Scottsboro, State Route 40 travels across the base of Lookout Mountain. The narrow, twisty roadway continues until the route reaches Dutton in western DeKalb County. East of Dutton, the roadway has fewer curves as it continues across the county. While State Route 40 does not directly intersect Interstate 59, there is direct access to I-59 via State Route 117 approximately one mile southeast of the eastern terminus of the route.
