State Route 67 begins at the intersection with U.S. Highway 231 and begins a northwestern route towards Decatur. The highway passes through the cities and towns of Joppa, Somerville, and Priceville and ends at the state docks, north of U.S. Highway 72 Alternate on the northwestern side of Decatur.
When SR-67 enters the Decatur City Limits, it is known as Point Mallard Parkway. The highway is also one of Decatur's only two links to Interstate 65. After intersecting with U.S. Highway 31 in Southeastern Decatur, SR-67 turns into The Beltline, providing a western bypass to relieve traffic on 6th Avenue that runs down the center of town.
Over time, The Beltline currently has its own traffic problem and provided ample space for large businesses with interest in Decatur. Plans are underway to widen The Beltline from its current size of 4 lanes to 6 lanes to help move traffic along more smoothly. One of the businesses that has contributed to congestion is the Colonial Mall Decatur, the only mall in the Decatur Metropolitan Area.
