State Route 249 (SR 249) is a 192-mile-long (309 km) route in the United States that serves as a connection between Alabama's SR 27 in Ozark with Fort Rucker.

Route description

SR 249 begins at the eastern gate of Fort Rucker southwest of Ozark in Dale County, heading northeast on four-lane undivided Andrews Avenue. The route runs along the border between Fort Rucker to the west and Ozark to the east, passing through wooded areas with some fields, homes, and businesses, intersecting CR 21 and CR 34. The road fully enters Ozark and runs through woodland with some residences, intersecting CR 101 before coming to its northern terminus at US 231/SR 53 in a commercial area.

Before 2020, the route continued northeast as a five-lane road with a center left-turn lane that passed more businesses before coming to an intersection at SR 27, where Andrews Avenue continues northeast as part of that route.[1][2][3] In 2020, SR 27 was instead rerouted over this section.

Major intersections

The entire route is in Ozark, Dale County.
