State Route 119 is a state highway in Alabama that extends 45 miles northeastward from Montevallo to Leeds. Although there are shorter and faster routes connecting Montevallo and Leeds, SR-119 is a heavily traveled local route that connects several suburbs and subdivisions in the suburbs of Birmingham. The southern terminus of SR-119 is at the junction with State Route 25 in Montevallo, and the northern terminus of the route is at a junction with U.S. Highway 78 in Leeds.
Until the 1980’s much of the route of SR-119 passed through rural areas of Shelby County. Suburban growth has led to commercial and residential growth adjoining the route. In 2005, a four-mile section of SR-119 south of U.S. Highway 31 in Alabaster was widened to four lanes.
