18th Street South
18th Street South (originally Park Avenue) in Homewood is a southern extension of Birmingham's 18th Street South. The approximately 0.8-mile, north-south road runs from where the Homewood and Birmingham city limits meet at Valley Avenue through the Homewood Central Business District to Oxmoor Road.

The road was renamed from Park Avenue during the 1940s when Homewood renamed several streets to continue Birmingham's street numbering system.

18th Street was originally part of Montgomery Highway (U.S. Highway 31) and featured a curve at 29th Avenue South to direct southbound traffic over to what is now Independence Drive. Highway 31 was rerouted to the Elton B. Stephens Expressway, once it was completed in 1970. The curve was converted to a standard T-intersection in the 1990s.

MAX Transit Routes 39 and 42 include the street in their routes. It is also often part of the route for the Homewood Christmas parade and Homewood High School homecoming parade. In addition, the Homewood Christmas Star is hung over the street at the top of the hill, just north of Oxmoor Road, each year in December.
