27th Avenue South is a six-block (0.4-mile) long street in Homewood. The two-lane, east-west road runs from B. M. Montgomery Street in the west to Lynn Boulevard in the east, just past 19th Place. The road is divided into two sections, as it doesn't align at 18th Street South. At that intersection, the western section (originally known as 11th Street) is a half-block south of the eastern section (originally known as Pine Street).

The two roads, 11th and Pine Streets, were renamed as 27th Avenue during the 1940s when Homewood renamed several streets to continue Birmingham's street numbering system.
