SR 114 travels northeast through rural parts of Choctaw and Marengo counties. The highway travels through sections of Alabama’s Black Belt, one of the poorest regions of the state. It serves as a leg of the route between Butler and Linden and travels primarily through rural areas and unincorporated communities. The only incorporated towns the route traverses are Pennington and Myrtlewood.
This section needs expansion. You can help by adding to it. (November 2016)
Until 2000, the old Naheola Bridge on SR 114 near the unincorporated town of Naheola was one of only two bridges in the world where rail and road traffic shared the same surface. Traffic signals were mounted at either end of the bridge, controlled from the lift bridge operator stationed on top of the lift, that signaled to cars when it was safe to cross.
The bridge was closed to road traffic in 2000, and in 2001 the Highway Department constructed a new bridge for SR 114 parallel to the old Naheola Bridge.
