Baldwin Beach Express (BBE) is a 13.2-mile-long (21.2 km) four-lane highway near the beaches of Baldwin County near the Gulf of Mexico in the southwestern part of the U.S. state of Alabama. It was built to relieve traffic on heavily traveled State Route 59 (SR 59). The interchange with Interstate 10 (I-10) was the last piece of the highway that was completed. The southern terminus of the highway is at an intersection with both County Route 28 (CR 28) and the Foley Beach Express (FBE) in the far north part of Foley. The northern terminus of the highway is at an intersection with CR 68 east of Loxley.
The BBE begins at an intersection with the FBE in the far northern part of Foley. Here, the roadway continues as CR 28. It travels due north from its southern terminus and then intersects the eastern terminus of a western segment CR 28. It then intersects CR 32. It crosses over a tributary of Negro Creek and then the creek itself. It intersects CR 34 (Lehman Road). It then intersects CR 36. One block later is an intersection with the southern terminus of CR 38 and the eastern terminus of Dubose Road. Another block later is an intersection with the western terminus of a northern segment of CR 38. It crosses over Waterhole Branch and then intersects CR 48. After crossings of Rock Creek and Blackwater River, it intersects U.S. Route 90 (US 90; Old Spanish Trail). The BBE crosses over Davis Branch and then intersects CR 62. Then, the highway curves to the north-northwest and then intersects CR 64. It curves back to the north and intersects CR 68. The two highways travel concurrently to an interchange with Interstate 10 (I-10). Just north of the interchange, at an intersection with the southern terminus of Roserun Road, the BBE ends and the roadway, as CR 68, curves to a due east direction.
