Henrietta Road is a residential street running along the ridge of Red Mountain in Birmingham's Redmont Park neighborhood. It formerly connected Woodcrest Road and Woodcrest Place near Vulcan Park to Aberdeen Road, just below Crest Road. It was severed, however, in the 1960s by construction of the Red Mountain cut for the Elton B. Stephens Expressway. The western section has since been called Henrietta Road South.

The 1923-1930 homes along the eastern portion of Henrietta Road are included as contributing structures to the Red Mountain Suburbs Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places, which was listed in 1985.

Two homes on Henrietta Road were demolished in 2013 with approval from the Birmingham Design Review Committee.

On December 4, 2018 businessman George Barber Jr successfully petitioned the Birmingham City Council to vacate the eastern portion of Henrietta Road to allow him to consolidate some of his property, on which he had previously proposed to develop "The Crest on Red Mountain" gated residential community. No development plan was offered as part of the vacation request.
