Twenty-fourth Street North is a north-south street running from the 24th Street Viaduct over the Railroad Reservation in the Central City neighborhood to 23rd Street North, just north of 15th Avenue North. The road then resumes from Fred L. Shuttlesworth Drive at 19th Avenue North and continues to 41st Avenue North in North Birmingham.

Between 1st Avenue North and 4th Avenue South, 24th Street is part of U.S. Highway 78. Until the 1970s, U.S. Highway 31 came into the city from the north down 26th Street North as it does now, but came over two blocks on 8th Avenue North to 24th Street. The highway then followed 24th south to 7th Avenue South.
