US 29 was one of the minor US Highways because it does not connect major cities. Therefore, no Interstate Highway has been constructed directly off US 29 in Alabama, except for the northernmost section between Tuskegee and the Georgia border, where Interstate 85 was constructed between 1963 and 1966, rendering this section of US 29 no through-interest. had more.
The section between Brewton and Flomaton was widened in two phases to a 2×2 divided highway, the approach road from Brewton was widened to 2×2 lanes around 1970, the further widening to Flomaton was carried out in the 1990s. The section double-numbered with US 331 between Brantley and Luverne was widened to 2×2 lanes around 1998.
Every day, 6,500 to 12,700 vehicles drive on the four-lane section between Flomaton and Brewton, dropping to 1,400 vehicles between Brewton and Andalusia. Between Andalusia and Luverne, 1,500 to 3,000 vehicles and 6,300 vehicles drove on the four-lane section south of Luverne. Between Luverne and Troy, 3,000 to 3,800 vehicles and 1,000 to 2,400 vehicles ran between Troy and Union Springs. This increases slightly to 2,100 to 2,700 vehicles between Union Springs and Tuskegee and 3,000 to 4,000 vehicles between Tuskegee and Auburn. Auburn and Opelika have 15,000 to 30,000 vehicles, the busiest section of US 29, which runs through built-up areas.
