Alberta Highway 595
Alberta Provincial Highway No. 595, also known as Highway 595, is a short highway in the province of Alberta, Canada. It runs west–east from Gaetz Avenue (Highway 2A) along 19 Street, along the southern edge of the Red Deer River valley, to Highway 21 approximately five kilometres (3 mi) north of the village of Delburne. It is also known as Delburne Road and "The Coal Trail" deriving from the route being used to access the Coal mines near Delburne from Red Deer in the early 1900s and is about 38 kilometres (24 mi) long.

Prior to the completion of Highway 11 in the early 1990s, Highway 595 was Red Deer's main eastern approach. Highway 595 used to extended 5.7 kilometres (3.5 mi) east of its current eastern terminus at Range Road 231, but when Highway 21 was realigned to bypass Delburne in the 1980s, the section became part of Highway 21.
