State Route 55 (SR 55) is a 58.758-mile-long (94.562 km) state highway in the southern part of the U.S. state of Alabama. The southern terminus of the highway is at the Florida state line, where the highway continues as Florida State Road 85. The northern terminus of the highway is at an intersection with SR 106 at Georgiana in southern Butler County.
SR 55 is a continuation of a route heading northward from Fort Walton Beach and Crestview, Florida. It enters the state at the border town of Florala, where it continues as Florida State Road 85. As the highway heads towards Andalusia, it travels through the Conecuh National Forest.
The highway intersects US 29/US 84 at Andalusia, forming a brief wrong-way concurrency, as southbound US 29 shares the same roadway as northbound SR 55, as well as westbound US 84. SR 55 and US 84 are concurrent as they lead northwesterly from Andalusia. At the small community of River Falls, SR 55 splits from US 84 and heads northward towards McKenzie, where it joins with US 31. Just south of Georgiana, US 31 splits from the route which continues to its terminus at SR 106, which connects with Interstate 65 (I-65).
This highway is increasing in popularity with travelers headed to the Fort Walton/Destin area.
