Route description 
From the west, LA 492 begins at an intersection with LA 8, which travels from Boyce to Colfax. LA 492 crawls through farmland, then climbs into hills for a short distance before ending at an intersection with US 71.
LA 492 was originally part of the Jefferson Highway auto route. Near the eastern terminus, a small road branches off to the south of LA 492, crossing a creek on a bridge from 1919, dated to the Jefferson Highway years.
LA 492 is an undivided, two-lane road for its entire route. Before the 1955 Louisiana Highway renumbering, LA 492 was signed as State Route 2116. It was also, for a time, signed as State Routes 1, 5, and U.S. 71.
