F. L. Shuttlesworth Drive is the name of a series of streets following the route of the pioneer Huntsville Road diagonally for four miles through the regular street grid in Birmingham's Northside and North Birmingham communities. It was dedicated in 1988 in honor of Alabama Christian Movement for Human Rights founder Fred Shuttlesworth, whose Bethel Baptist Church stands a few blocks east in Collegeville.

The first section takes off from 19th Street North at Oak Hill Cemetery and continues through Druid Hills to 19th Avenue North, continuing as 24th Street North.

The main section picks up again at east of U.S. Highway 31 at 18th Avenue North in the Norwood neighborhood. From there it continues northward through the eastern end of the Evergreen neighborhood, over Village Creek and through the center of the Collegeville and Harriman Park neighborhoods. The drive proceeds to Boyles Gap at Cedar Street, where it continues as Erwin Dairy Road.
