Route description[edit]

Looking north at LA 445 at the bridge over Sims Creek south of Robert

From the south, LA 445 begins near Lee's Landing. It heads north and intersects LA 22 and turns eastward to follow it for about a half-mile before turning back north. The highway heads toward the community of Robert, crossing Sims Creek and then intersecting (overpassing) I-12 at a folded-diamond interchange (Exit 47). At Robert, LA 445 and US 190 cross at a traffic signal. Continuing northward, LA 445 meets LA 40 (which it overlaps for about one mile) near Uneedus and passes along the eastern boundary of the Zemurray Gardens Lodge Complex.[2] After a northwestward jog, LA 445 meets LA 1062 near Husser. At that point, the road turns back northward (becoming Husser Road) until it ends at LA 16 east of Amite.

LA 445 is an undivided, two-lane highway for its entire length with exception of the on-off ramps, left turn lanes, and traffic islands at the I-12 interchange and at certain other intersections.

Major intersections[edit]

The entire highway is in Tangipahoa Parish.
