State Route 75 (SR 75) is a 113.220-mile-long (182.210 km) state highway in the U.S. state of Alabama that travels northeastward from Birmingham to the Georgia state line. The highway travels west of U.S. Route 11 (US 11) and roughly parallels that highway, as well as Interstate 59 (I-59). Other cities and towns along the highway include Center Point, Pinson, Oneonta, Albertville, Fyffe, and Rainsville.

Route description[edit]

SR 75 begins at an interchange with I-59 and US 11 at the intersection of Parkway East, Roebuck Drive, and Gadsden Road in eastern Birmingham. Until the 1990s, SR 75 overlapped US 11 along 1st Avenue North into downtown Birmingham, continuing to the intersection of the two highways with US 78.

After leaving Birmingham and Jefferson County, SR 75 travels through rural areas of Blount, Marshall, and DeKalb counties. North of Rainsville, SR 75 heads toward Trenton, Georgia. At the Georgia state line, the roadway continues as Georgia State Route 301.

History[edit]

In 1999, work was completed to widen SR 75 to four lanes into Oneonta.
