Twenty-second Street South (22nd Street South) is a one-way north-south street in Birmingham's Southside neighborhood, running south from the 22nd Street Viaduct over the Railroad Reservation to Highland Avenue, where it is interrupted by the Red Mountain Expressway.

A piece of 22nd Street South serves as part of the offramp from the Expressway to Highland Avenue or to 23rd Street South, forming the southern edge of the Highland Park neighborhood. Another two-way section of 22nd Street South begins at Arlington Avenue and ends as it turns onto 16th Avenue South in the Redmont Park neighborhood. On the other side of Red Mountain, there is a short two-way section of 22nd Street South in Mountain Brook's English Village, ending at 21st Avenue South.

22nd Street South forms the border between the Five Points South neighborhood to the west and the Southside neighborhood to the east. It also forms the western edge of the National Register of Historic Places' Southside Historic District between 4th and 7th Avenue South. The first four blocks of 22nd Street South lie within the city's Historic Downtown Automotive District, and the section from 5th Alley South to 7th Avenue South runs through the city's Southside Historic District.

The 400 through 700 blocks of 22nd Street South are included in Birmingham's Midtown Commercial Revitalization District, and the eastern edge of the City Action Partnership's service area extending to 5th Avenue South.

The Red Mountain Railroad followed 22nd Street South up Red Mountain from 15th Avenue South to Warwick Court on its way to Rosedale between 1889 and 1893. In the 1940s, the street was one of the proposed routes for a Red Mountain Tunnel.
