State Route 118, a state highway in Alabama, is a 64 mile long route in the northwestern part of the state. Prior to the completion of sections of Corridor X/Future Interstate 22, SR-118 served only as the unsigned partner route of U.S. Highway 278 between the Mississippi state line near Sulligent and Guin. As new sections of Corridor X have opened, U.S. Highway 78 has been rerouted onto the new limited access highway, and the old sections of US-78 have been designated as SR-118, thus extending the route eastward by nearly 40 miles. The current eastern terminus of the route is west of Jasper at the junction with State Route 69.
