Route description[edit]

SR 48 begins at the Alabama state line, where the roadway continues as Alabama State Route 117. This is located northwest of Cloudland. SR 48 travels southeast, into Cloudland, where it has an intersection with the southern terminus of SR 157. SR 48 then curves to the town of Menlo, where it intersects SR 337 (7th Avenue). SR 48 continues east, through rural areas of the county, to Summerville, where it meets its eastern terminus, an intersection with US 27/SR 1 in downtown.[1]
