State Route 59 is a 94-mile (151 km) state highway in Baldwin and Monroe counties in the southwestern portion of the state. The route extends from Gulf Shores on the Gulf of Mexico coast to Uriah in rural southwestern Alabama.

Route description[edit]

Starting at a junction with State Route 182 in Gulf Shores, the route runs north through Foley, Robertsdale, Loxley and Bay Minette, where it junctions with State Route 287. This portion of the route is a four-lane highway, known as the Gulf Shores Parkway, that was widened in the 1990s for hurricane evacuation purposes. Part of the road is co-routed with U.S. Highway 31.

North of Bay Minette the route becomes a much more rural road as it proceeds northeasterly towards Uriah and its final junction with State Route 21.
