Louisiana Highway 301 (LA 301) is a north–south state highway in Louisiana that serves Jefferson Parish. It spans 3.0 miles (4.8 km) in a west to east direction[1] and is known locally as Barataria Boulevard.

Route description[edit]

From the west, LA 301 begins at the north bank of Bayou Villars. A portion of LA 301 south of the bayou is now designated as LA 3257, although it is unclear whether both sections were ever connected. It runs in an easterly direction along the north bank of Bayou Barataria to a terminus with LA 45 near Crown Point. With the truncation of LA 301 at its current terminus, the highway runs more west to east than south to north, but because of its former length, it maintains a north/south banner.

LA 301 is an undivided, two-lane road for its entire length.

Major intersections[edit]

The entire highway is in Jefferson Parish.
