U.S. Highway 61
U.S. 61 stretches nearly 122 miles through southeastern Louisiana, connecting Baton Rouge with New Orleans along the four-lane Airline Highway. The highway was the main route between the two population centers until Interstate 10 was completed. North from Baton Rouge, U.S. 61 continues with four lanes to Natchez, Mississippi. This portion of roadway was also cosigned as U.S. 65 until 1951.
