Crestwood Boulevard is the section of U. S. Highway 78 running from 5th Avenue South and 47th Street to somewhere near John Rogers Drive in Irondale. It is so-named because it traverses the Crestwood neighborhood before crossing Red Mountain just south of Red Gap.

East of Montevallo Road the Boulevard follows a route more or less parallel to I-20.

The section of Crestwood Boulevard between Irondale and Crestwood Festival Center was landscaped in preparation for the 1996 Olympic Games. Gradco, Inc. was paid $26,000 to install new plantings specified by landscape architect Mike Kirk to continue the style used already in Irondale.
