Louisiana Highway 425 (LA 425) was a state highway in Louisiana that served East Baton Rouge Parish. It spanned 2.02 miles (3.25 km) in a south to north direction, and was located completely within the city limits of Baton Rouge. It is known as Staring Lane.
LA 425 provided access from Highland Road to Perkins Road. It met LA 30, which used Highland Road at the time, and continued north to LA 427, known as Perkins Road. It met the now-defunct LA 949, which used Hyacinth Avenue. Hyacinth Avenue was once a portion of Perkins Road.
It was an undivided, two-lane highway for its entire length.
Staring Lane continue to exist today as a locally-maintained road, but extensions were later added its southern end. Staring Lane currently ends at LA 42 (Burbank Drive) since an extension was built in 2011. Construction is currently going on to widen Staring Lane to four lanes; this project is slated for completion in September 2013. Other plans in the works include extending Staring Lane to LA 30 (Nicholson Drive).
