|Maintained by UDOT|
|Length:||0.345 mi (0.555 km)|
|Existed:||1992 – present|
|South end:||SR‑24 in Vermillion|
|I‑70 / US‑89 in Vermillion|
|North end:||Sign indicating start of Federal Route 2570 in Vermillion|
From its southern terminus with SR-24, the highway heads northwest and veers more toward the north before meeting Interstate 70. Two-hundredths of a mile later, the route terminates at a sign indicating the beginning of Federal Route 2570.
SR-259 was added to the state highway system in 1992 as a connection from the new I-70 to SR-24 (signed as US-89 until 1992). Although the road that continues north from I-70 is former US-89, SR-259 is not; the original alignment is State Street, crossing the ca. 1950 bypass (now SR-118) into SR-24.
The entire route is in Sevier County.
