Louisiana Highway 428 (LA 428) is a state highway in Louisiana that serves Jefferson and Orleans Parishes. It spans an irregular direction (though it is bannered as an east/west route) for 8.9 miles (14.3 km).[1] It exists entirely as a four-lane, divided road.

Route description[edit]

From the south, LA 428 begins as Behrman Highway at a junction with Louisiana Highway 23 in Terrytown. LA 428 then continues due north out of Jefferson Parish and into Orleans Parish. LA 428 then turns west and becomes General de Gaulle Drive and intersects the Westbank Expressway before it enters Gretna and becomes Burmaster Street. About 3 blocks from the Mississippi River, LA 428 turns north onto Franklin Street, which becomes Nunez Street upon reentering Orleans Parish. LA 428 crosses under the Crescent City Connection as it returns to Orleans Parish without an interchange with US 90. At Socrates Street, LA 428 turns northeasterly onto a short connector and terminates one block later at a six point intersection. The designation reappears several blocks to the northeast at the intersection of Behrman Avenue with General Meyer Avenue and continues eastward along General Meyer to its intersection with Woodland Avenue (Louisiana Highway 407) where LA 428 terminates.
