State Route 59 (SR 59) is a 94-mile (151 km) state highway in Baldwin and Monroe counties in the southwestern portion of the U.S. state of Alabama. The highway extends from Gulf Shores on the Gulf of Mexico coast to Uriah in rural southwestern Alabama.
The route begins at a junction with AL-21 in Uriah. The route maintains an east-to-west route for about ten miles until it reaches Georgetown. Here it turns north-to-south. The route continues south until it crosses the state line into Baldwin County.
It reaches Bay Minette and junctions with AL-225, and eventually I-65 at mile 34. The route then continues south to AL-287, also known as the Gulf Shores Parkway. That route is an effective route for people heading to Montgomery and beyond from Gulf Shores. The routes swap right-of-ways and AL-59 continues along the Gulf Shores Parkway. The route reaches U.S. 31 soon. The two routes engage in a concurrency to Stapleton. U.S. 31 splits off from AL-59 and heads towards Mobile. AL-59 continues downwards to Loxley, where it junctions with I-10 at a Parclo Interchange.
It then engages with a much shorter concurrency with U.S. 90 (much shorter than its concurrency with U.S. 31). The route continues south to Foley, which is home to its notable junction with the Foley Beach Express access road and its other notable junction with U.S. 98.
After passing by The Park at OWA and a Lambert's Cafe, the route makes a short journey south to the Pelican Place at Craft Farms. Just past that point, the route makes a slight curve and The Track Family Fun Center comes into play, a small entertainment complex. Immediately after that junction, the road crosses Portage Creek into Gulf Shores. Here, Waterville USA, the famous Blalock Seafood store, and Lulu's Seafood, plus multiple high-rise condominiums come into view. The route junctions with AL-180 and hits the last stretch of regular stores in the area before reaching AL-182, also known as the famous Alabama's Coastal Connection, which is its southern terminus.
