Chalkville Road is an approximately 5-mile stretch of Jefferson County Road 10 through Trussville, Grayson Valley, And Clay.

County Highway 10 begins at the Jefferson - St Clair County line and continues northward as Roper Road. It becomes South Chalkville Road at the Queenstown Road intersection. At the Main Street intersection it continues due north as North Chalkville Road through the Cahaba Project. Just south of Interstate 59 it turns to the northwest. After it crosses the interstate bridge, the road continues to the northwest as Chalkville Road. This stretch, which traverses Chalkville Mountain, was previously named Chalkville Mountain Road. The road continues through Grayson Valley and Clay until the Old Springville Road intersection, where it continues northwesterly as Sweeney Hollow Road.

In 2013, Trussville's downtown master plan called for the removal of buildings between Linden Street and Main Street, creating a dedicated turn lane from the Vann Circle intersection of southbound Chalkville Road on to the eastbound lanes of Main Street (U. S. Highway 11), and aligning Linden with the access road to the Trussville CIty Schools Central Office. Negotiations began that fall to acquire the land necessary for the turn lane. The property was acquired but the turn lane plans were abandoned for a plan which called for a pedestrian plaza at the northwest corner of the intersection. The Braden Furniture and Husky Barber Shop buildings were razed in 2019, with Herb's Hardware coming down in 2020 during a project to relocate utilities at the intersection underground and create sidewalks. A plaza with a clock tower donated by the Trussville Rotary Daybreak Club was constructed and Linden Avenue relocated in 2021.

During 2014, the roadbed of North Chalkville Road from the Rockridge Road/Poplar Street intersection southward to Hewitt Street was rebuilt entirely at a cost of $517,911.43 by Dunn Construction. Sidewalks and gutters were also repaired.
