Louisiana Highway 3134 (LA 3134) is a state highway in Louisiana that serves Jefferson Parish. It spans 7.2 miles (11.6 km) in a north-south direction[1] along Leo Kerner/Lafitte Parkway between Jean Lafitte and Estelle (south of Marrero) and acts as a four-lane bypass to the older Barataria Boulevard (LA 45).

Route description[edit]

From the south, LA 3134 begins at an unfinished interchange with LA 45 in Jean Lafitte. It proceeds northward as a two-lane, undivided highway co-signed with LA 45 and crosses a bridge over Bayou Barataria/Gulf Intracoastal Waterway.

Reaching the north side of the bayou at Crown Point, the route widens to four lanes divided, and LA 45 splits to the west. LA 3134 continues north, intersecting LA 45 again and crossing Bayou des Familles. LA 3134 proceeds north to a terminus at LA 45 just south of Marrero in an area known as Estelle.

History[edit]

Until recently, the route was known as Lafitte-Larose Highway as it was originally projected to extend southwest from its present terminus to Larose roughly along the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway. This extension was never constructed, and the highway is now signed as Leo Kerner/Lafitte Parkway.

Major intersections[edit]

The entire highway is in Jefferson Parish.
