The B4137 is an urban B-road to the north of Birmingham city centre.

The road starts at a roundabout on the A47 Heartlands Parkway in Washwood Heath and heads north, as dual carriageway at this point. It passes Star City and crosses two canals before reaching the A5127. Here there is a short multiplex southwest along the A-road between adjacent sets of traffic lights.

The B4137 reappears as Aston Hall Road. This is actually the original eastern end of the road; it was extended to meet the A47 after the Heartlands Parkway was built. Continuing west the B4137 goes under the Cross City line before being forced to TOTSO left (straight on is the unclassified Electric Avenue) under the Walsall Line, still along Aston Hall Road. The A38(M) goes over on a flyover and then the B4137 reaches a set of traffic lights. It TOTSOs right here, thus going round two sides of Aston church.

Now heading northwest, the B4137 passes Villa Park before ending at a roundabout just to the west of Witton station. It meets the A4040 and B4140 here.

Originally the A4040 did not exist and so the B4137 continued ahead for over twice as long again, following the current route of that road (the spur rather than the mainline) as far as the A41 in Handsworth.
