Interstate 759 (I-759) is a part of the Interstate Highway System in the US state of Alabama. It is a spur route that runs for 4.54 miles (7.31 km) between the cities of Attalla and Gadsden in Etowah County. It begins at I-59 in Attalla and ends at U.S. Route 411 (US 411) in southern Gadsden adjacent to the Gadsden Mall. The route continues east as the at-grade thoroughfare State Route 759 (SR 759) until the route ends at SR 291 in Gadsden.

Route description

Two green signs are located above an elevated portion of roadway with no traffic visible on a cloudy day.
I-759 becomes SR 759 at US 411.

I-759 begins at exit 182 of I-59 in Attalla.[3] From this point, the route travels in an easterly direction across a marshy area prior to reaching its first exit at Black Creek Parkway, a diamond interchange.[4][5] From the Black Creek exit, I-759 continues in its easterly direction and crosses the Coosa River along a causeway and short bridge prior to reaching US 411.[6] At the US 411 interchange, the I-759 designation ends, but the route continues as SR 759 in spanning the Coosa River.[7]


A new four-lane bridge crossing the Coosa River opened in 2004.[8]


Currently, there are plans to extend I-759 east to US 278 on the east side of Gadsden.[9] In May 2022, the Alabama Department of Transportation announced that it would fund the $65 million eastern extension.[10] There have also been plans to extend the route west from Interstate 59 to U.S. Route 411 in Attalla.[11]
