The boulevard is 9.5 miles in length and passes through Allentown, Pennsylvania. Its southern terminus is in Emmaus, Pennsylvania at Chestnut Street and its northern terminus is in North Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania at Mauch Chunk Road. It also is a major junction for I-78, a major east-west highway between the Harrisburg area in the west and New York City's Holland Tunnel in the east.
Cedar Crest Boulevard is home to many attractions in the Lehigh Valley, including two rival high schools, Emmaus High School and Parkland High School, as well as the main campuses of Lehigh Valley Hospital and Cedar Crest College. Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom, Lake Muhlenberg, the Lehigh Country Club, the Lehigh Parkway, Muhlenberg College and Trexler Park all border the boulevard.

In 1941, from Walbert Avenue (US 309/PA 29) in Wennersville to Chestnut Street (PA 29) in Emmaus, Cedar Crest Boulevard was designated as Pennsylvania Route 229. By 1960, however, the route number was removed, and it was renamed Cedar Crest Boulevard. The route is sometimes referred to by locals as simply Cedar Crest.
The entire route is in Lehigh County.
