State Route 210 or SR-210, also known as Ross Clark Circle or simply "The Circle" to locals, is a route overlaid by US-84, US-231, and US-431 encircling Dothan, Alabama in Houston County. For many years, the AL-210 designation appeared on state road maps but was not actually signed as such. This has changed in recent years and today the AL-210 designation is noted on signs along with the US Routes that share its circumference of Dothan.
SR-210 is highly developed and heavily used both by those who live and work in Dothan and by motorists bound for beach destinations in Florida who use it as a bypass of the city. It is a divided four-lane highway and carries a speed limit of 50 mph (80 km/h) for its entire circumference. As with all other state highways in Alabama, mile markers are posted along the route. Numbering begins and ends at the intersection with US-231/ South Oates Street on the south side of the city.
The road was constructed in the late 1950s and was made possible by former Alabama governor "Big Jim" Folsom who authorized the state expenditures. He directed that the road be named for Ross Clark, Folsom's favorite brother-in-law, who had committed suicide in 1955.
