A pair of U.S. 61 reassurance shields were posted at the merge with Louisiana 964 southeast of Saint Francisville. These were replaced with a single shield on the right side and speed limits increased to 65 miles per hour.
Louisiana 964 merges onto the divided highway for 0.7 miles to cross Thompson Creek into East Feliciana Parish. From there Louisiana 964 loops 15.3 miles east from U.S. 61 to a point three miles north of Scotlandville in Baton Rouge. The highway represents the original U.S. 61 and is signed as Old Scenic Highway. Photos taken 10/13/03.
U.S. 61 enters the city of Baton Rouge ahead of Blount Road and quickly proceeds from there to meet Interstate 110 south. Interstate 110 provides a direct connection from U.S. 61 at Scotlandville to downtown and Interstate 10 at the Horace Wilkinson Bridge. Photo taken 01/05/09.
