From Huntsville, AL    ( From the North ):
 

1.     Traveling south on I-65, just after you’ve passed the “FINLEY BLVD” exit, begin moving over to the far “left-hand” lane in order to merge (to the “left”) onto “I-59 NORTH / I-20 EAST”. [Approximate Distance from “FINLEY BLVD” exit: 1.3 Miles]

2.     Once onto I-59 North / I-20 East (as you approach the Birmingham-Jefferson Civic Ctr. Complex, on the left-hand side of the interstate), begin moving over toward the far “right-hand” lane. 

3.     Once you’ve passed the “22nd STREET” Exit, make sure that you’re in the far “right-hand” lane in order to take the “US-280 East / US-31 South / Elton B. Stephens Expressway – EXIT 126A” exit ramp, to the right. [Approximate Distance from “I-65 // I-59 // I-20” interchange: 1.2 Miles]

4.     Once you’re on US-280 East / US-31 South, continue all the way through the downtown business district [Approximate Distance: 3.2 - 3.3  Miles from the I-59 North / I-20 East & US-280 East / US-31 South / Elton B. Stephens Expressway interchange ]. You will pass the “UNIVERSITY BLVD” exit (on your right), the St. Vincent’s Hospital complex (on your left), just before the cut into Red Mountain, and the “21st AVE, S / VULCAN PARK” exit (on the “right-hand” side of the road).  [Note: “21st AVE, S / VULCAN PARK” exit is approximately 2.8 Miles from the I-59 North / I-20 East & US-280 East / US-31 South / Elton B. Stephens Expressway interchange ].

 

5.     Once you pass the “21st AVE, S / VULCAN PARK” exit ramp, you should veer to the "middle" lane.  Approximately 0.3 to 0.4 miles beyond the “21st AVE, S / VULCAN PARK” exit ramp, you will see the right far-hand lane veer off to become Highway “280 - East” to Sylacauga.  Continue 'straight', continuing on Highway "31 - South" and specifically following the "Homewood - Next Right" sign.  Just beyond the Highway 280 & Highway 31 split, you will see the "Rosedale Drive" sign and exit ramp on the right-hand side of the road.  Take this exit.  [Note:  there is no merge lane unto "ROSEDALE DRIVE".  You must, therefore, come to a complete stop at the bottom of the exit ramp.]  You will merge onto "ROSEDALE DRIVE" and continue through the first traffic light, which is the intersection of "ROSEDALE DRIVE" and "WOODCREST PLACE".  You will take a left at the next traffic light, which is the intersection of "ROSEDALE DRIVE" and "18th STREET, SOUTH".  [Note: our building is on the corner of "18th STREET, SOUTH" & "REESE STREET".]

7.     Continue traveling south on "18th STREET, SOUTH", straight through the intersection of "18th STREET, SOUTH" and "29th AVENUE, SOUTH". [ Note: "29th AVENUE, SOUTH" intersects only from the left.]

8.     Just beyond the "18th STREET, SOUTH" and "29th AVENUE, SOUTH" intersection, you will see a side street (i.e., "REESE STREET") entering from the right.  Our building is on the corner of "18th STREET, SOUTH" and "REESE STREET", on the far right-hand side of the intersection, as you approach.  As you approach the intersection, if you'll look to the right, you should see our modern-looking steel and glass door entrance and the number "1747" just above the door entrance.  We suggest that you park on "18th STREET, SOUTH", where there should be adequate parking.

From Montgomery, AL    ( From the South ):
 

1.     Traveling north on I-65, as you are approaching Birmingham, you will pass the “ALABASTER / HWY. 31” exit.

2.     You will, then pass the “PELHAM / HWY 52”, “OAK MOUNTAIN / HWY 119 / INDIAN SPRINGS”, and “VALLEYDALE RD / HWY 17” exits.

3.     After the “VALLEYDALE RD / HWY 17” exit, you need to begin merging over into your far “right-hand” lane. Approximately 11.3 Miles from the “ALABASTER / HWY. 31” exit, (i.e., just after the “VALLEYDALE RD / HWY 17” exit) you will merge onto “I-459 NORTH” leading toward ATLANTA / GADSDEN. You, therefore, need to begin working your way over into the far “right-hand” lane, once you pass the “VALLEYDALE RD / HWY 17” exit. You will have a couple of miles within which to work your way over.

4.     Once you have merged (to the “right”) off of “I-65 NORTH” onto “I-459 NORTH” leading toward ATLANTA / GADSDEN, you will travel approximately 4.6 Miles. You will pass the “ACTON RD.” exit, before coming to the “MOUNTAIN BROOK / HWY 280 WEST / AL 38 WEST” exit.

5.     So, just beyond the “ACTON RD.” exit, make sure you’re in the far “right-hand” lane. You’ll have a couple of miles within which to work your way over.

6.     When you exit onto HWY 280, make sure your taking the exit that will put you on “HWY 280 WEST” – leading toward MOUNTAIN BROOK and into BIRMINGHAM. You should, at some point, cross back over I-459 – heading west. [Again, the distance, from the “I-65 NORTH / I-459 NORTH” interchange to the “MTN BROOK / HWY 280 WEST” exit, should be approximately 4.6 Miles.] 

7.     Once on “HWY 280”, heading “west”, you will travel a total of approximately 5.0 Miles. You will, immediately, pass “The Summit” shopping complex (on the right); then, pass the intersections of “CAHABA RIVER RD. / DOLLY RIDGE RD.” and “GREEN VALLEY RD. / ROCKY RIDGE RD.”; then, pass the Birmingham water works treatment facility (on the ‘left’); pass “OVERTON RD.” and CHEROKEE RD” (on the ‘right’); and descend down a hill, crossing “SHADES CREEK PARKWAY”. As you’ve crossed “SHADES CREEK PARKWAY” (while continuing on HWY 280 WEST into Mtn. Brook), you will travel ‘uphill’ past the “Office Park” business complex, which is on both sides of HWY 280. You will pass an “Wachovia” and “AmSouth” bank (on the ‘left’), before passing the “HOLLYWOOD BLVD. / MONTEVALLO RD.” and “MOUNTAIN BROOK VILLAGE” exits.

8.     Once you’ve traveled under the “HOLLYWOOD BLVD” exit overpass and passed the “MOUNTAIN BROOK VILLAGE / BIRMINGHAM ZOO” exit (on the ‘right’), “HWY 280” begins to curve to the ‘left’. Move over into your far ‘left-hand’ lane. You will see a “Colonial Bank” building sitting off (by itself) to the ‘right’, once you’ve entered the ‘left-hand’ curve. STAY TO THE LEFT. “HWY 280” curves back to the ‘right’ and continues on into downtown Birmingham. Your destination is not downtown Birmingham; it is Homewood. So, STAY STRAIGHT, which actually keeps you to the “left’. Although the road looks as if it’s still HWY 280, it is actually “ROSEDALE DR.”. You will immediately travel under an the “HWY 280 EAST / HWY 31 SOUTH” overpasses (coming out of downtown Birmingham). As you travel under both overpasses, continue 'straight' through the first traffic light, which is the intersection of "ROSEDALE DRIVE" and "WOODCREST PLACE".  You will take a left at the next traffic light, which is the intersection of "ROSEDALE DRIVE" and "18th STREET, SOUTH".  [Note: our building is on the corner of "18th STREET, SOUTH" & "REESE STREET".]

9.     You will turn left onto "18th STREET, SOUTH" (traveling south) and will continue 'straight' on "18th STREET, SOUTH", through the intersection of "18th STREET, SOUTH" & "28th AVENUE, SOUTH", which is only 0.2 miles from where you turned onto "18th STREET, SOUTH".  You are, now, in the heart of the retail district of downtown Homewood.

10.    Continue traveling south on "18th STREET, SOUTH", straight through the intersection of "18th STREET, SOUTH" and "29th AVENUE, SOUTH". [ Note: "29th AVENUE, SOUTH" intersects only from the left.]

11.    Just beyond the "18th STREET, SOUTH" and "29th AVENUE, SOUTH" intersection, you will see a side street (i.e., "REESE STREET") entering from the right.  Our building is on the corner of "18th STREET, SOUTH" and "REESE STREET", on the far right-hand side of the intersection, as you approach.  As you approach the intersection, if you'll look to the right, you should see our modern-looking steel and glass door entrance and the number "1747" just above the door entrance.  We suggest that you park on "18th STREET, SOUTH", where there should be adequate parking.

 12.    Once you enter through our main "1747 REESE STREET" entrance, immediately to your right, on the ground floor level, is our Reception area.
