The following is a list of minor state highways in the U.S. state of Louisiana in the 1-399 range. Many of these routes were designated as farm-to-market (or Class "C") routes in the 1955 Louisiana Highway renumbering. The shorter routes in the list often serve as connectors between main highways or are pieces of state-maintained roadways left over from highway realignments. Others are simply state-maintained bridges over waterways or provide access to various La DOTD facilities.
