Route description[edit]

From the west, LA 28 begins at an intersection with US 171, at the north city limits of Leesville in Vernon Parish, running concurrent with LA 8. LA 8 turns northeast about five miles (8.0 km) east of Leesville and is called the Slagle Road. The highway intersects with LA 121 then LA 465 and a few miles after this enters Rapides Parish then Gardner before entering Alexandria. Between Leesville and Alexandria LA 28 is known as the Alexandria Highway. In Alexandria LA 28 is called Coliseum Boulevard. LA 28 intersects with MacArthur Drive where signs direct traffic to merge with north MacArthur Drive and intersect and runs concurrent with Interstate 49. After merging onto MacArthur Drive BR LA 28 exits and follows through downtown Alexandria city streets. This was the original route until December 2007.[citation needed] LA 28 exits and merges with US 167 east at the Casson Street exit in Pineville and becomes a part of the Pineville Expressway, which proceeds west along the Fulton Street Bridge, named for Alexander Fulton, the founder of Alexandria. This bridge links LA 28 over the Red River between Pineville and Alexandria. LA 28 exits at Holloway Prairie Road and continues east. Shortly after intersecting with LA 115, LA 28 enters La Salle Parish. East of Walters, LA 28 enters Catahoula Parish. LA 28 terminates at US 84 between Walters and Archie.
