Louisiana Highway 415 (LA 415) is a state highway in Louisiana. It spans north–south through West Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana and Pointe Coupee Parish, Louisiana for 24.1 miles (38.8 km).

Route description[edit]

LA 415 begins at an intersection with LA 76 in West Baton Rouge Parish, and heads due north approximately 4.3 miles towards Erwinville. This stretch of LA 413 is locally known as Poydras Bayou Road. In Erwinville, LA 413 intersects US 190 near milepost 4.3. It then proceeds north approximately 0.4 miles to an intersection with LA 620 near milepost 4.7. The highway at this point is locally referred to still as Poydras Bayou Road, but also as "Snake Road" due to its sharp curves that follow Bayou Poydras. It continues north approximately 1.8 miles and crosses into Pointe Coupee Parish near the intersection of LA 3091, at milepost 6.7.

LA 413 continues north into Pointe Coupee to an intersection with LA 416. It turns left and proceeds west, where it shares LA 416's roadbed for approximately 0.1 miles, then turns right, (known locally as Zach Road at this point) proceeding north to an intersection with LA 414. LA 413 turns left and proceeds west through Jarreau, Louisiana, then north through Dupont, Louisiana, and then east to another intersection with LA 414 in Ventress, LA. LA 413 then turns right and proceeds to an intersection with LA 415 in Ventress. The highway then turns left and proceeds west until it ends at milepost 23.6, inside the city limits of New Roads, LA.
