State Route 67 (SR 67) is a 47.107-mile-long (75.811 km) state highway in the U.S. state of Alabama that connects the city of Decatur to U.S. Route 231 at Rainbow Crossing in Blount County. This highway serves as a connector between Decatur and Gadsden.

Route description[edit]

SR 67 begins at an intersection with US 231 and travels to the northwest towards Decatur. The highway travels through the cities and towns of Joppa, Somerville, and Priceville and ends at the state docks, north of US 72 Alt. on the northwestern side of Decatur.

When SR 67 enters the Decatur city limits, it is known as Point Mallard Parkway. The highway is also one of Decatur's only two links to Interstate 65 (I-65). After intersecting US 31 in southeastern Decatur, SR 67 turns into The Beltline, providing a western bypass to relieve traffic on 6th Avenue that travels through the center of the city.

Future[edit]

Over time, The Beltline currently has its own traffic problem and provided ample space for large businesses with interest in Decatur. Plans are underway to widen The Beltline from its current size of four lanes to six lanes to help move traffic along more smoothly. One of the businesses that has contributed to congestion is the Colonial Mall Decatur, the only mall in the Decatur metropolitan area.
