The Uriah Butler Highway, sometimes referred to as UBH, is one of the major north-south highways on Trinidad island in Trinidad and Tobago.

It is named after Tubal Uriah Butler.

It runs from Champs Fleurs to Chaguanas where it meets the Sir Solomon Hochoy Highway. It crosses the Churchill-Roosevelt Highway at Valsayn.

The highway was originally named the Princess Margaret Highway and was constructed in 1958. It was extended and renamed for labour leader Tubal Uriah Butler in 1988.
