SR 34 is a two-lane highway that travels through rural areas in eastern Alabama. Besides the highways it intersects at its termini, it does not intersect with any other state routes or U.S. Highways. Also, besides connecting the cities of Talladega and Pell City, one of the main functions of SR 34 is that it serves as one of several highways that lead motorists to and from Talladega Superspeedway, the site of two NASCARSprint Cup races. It is also called Stemley Bridge Road and traverses over the Coosa River and passes Stemley Road Elementary School.
