Louisiana Highway 3155 (LA 3155) is an unsigned state highway in Louisiana that serves Jefferson Parish. LA 3155 spans 0.35 miles (0.56 km) in a south to north direction and is known as Little Farms Avenue.
LA 3155 is an undivided, two-lane highway for its entire length.
Little Farms Avenue is the main thoroughfare of the J. H. Little Farms residential subdivision opened in 1925. The subdivision was laid out alongside the Jefferson Highway (State Route 1 in the pre-1955 Louisiana highway system) and adjacent streetcar line operated by the Orleans-Kenner Traction Company. Little Farms Avenue was soon extended across the railroad tracks to connect with the newly-constructed Airline Highway. In 1954, the Bunche Village residential subdivision opened adjacent to Little Farms Avenue between the railroad tracks and Airline Highway.
Little Farms Avenue was originally designated as State Route 2220 in the pre-1955 system and included the entire length of the road from Jefferson Highway to Airline Highway (now Airline Drive). It became LA 611-13 in the 1955 Louisiana Highway renumbering, but in 1972, the route was renumbered to LA 3155 and retained only the section of Little Farms Avenue north of the railroad tracks.
The entire highway is in Jefferson Parish.
