State Route 49 (SR 49) is a 82.684-mile-long (133.067 km) state highway in the central and eastern parts of the U.S. state of Alabama. The southern terminus of the highway is at an interchange with Interstate 85 (I-85) at Franklin in Macon County. The northern terminus of the highway is at an intersection with SR 281 east of Cheaha State Park in southern Cleburne County.

Route description[edit]

SR 49 serves a connecting route giving access to several major highways for residents of small towns and rural areas along its length. For motorists in Macon County, it serves as an access route to I-85 heading towards Montgomery. Motorists in southern Tallapoosa County use SR 49 to access U.S. Route 280 (US 280) heading towards Alexander City and Birmingham; the two highways intersect at Dadeville. North of Dadeville, SR 49 travels through rural areas and small towns in eastern Alabama, traveling through New Site, Mellow Valley, and Lineville.

History[edit]

When SR 49 was formed in 1940, the highway traveled only from Tallassee to Dadeville. As a result of several northward extensions, by 1969 the highway extended to an intersection with US 78 near Heflin. In 1973, the highway was extended southward to its current terminus at I-85 in Macon County. When SR 281 was formed in 1995, the northernmost section of the route was truncated.
