Jump to: navigation, search

The following is a list of minor state highways in the U.S. state of Louisiana in the 650-699 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.


Louisiana Highway 652[edit]

Louisiana Highway 652
Location: Raceland
Length: 3.72 mi[1] (5.99 km)
Existed: 1955–present

Louisiana Highway 652 (LA 652) runs 3.72 miles (5.99 km) in a north–south direction from a dead end at Bayou Cut Off to LA 182 in Raceland, Lafourche Parish.[2]

The route initially heads west from a boat launch on Bayou Cut Off then turns north and crosses US 90 via an overpass. The freeway is accessed indirectly by the north service road. LA 652 zigzags west, then northwest along Bayou Folse, north across Bayou Cutoff, and finally northwest a short distance to an intersection with LA 182 just inside Raceland. LA 652 is an undivided two-lane highway for its entire length.[2][3][4]

The entire highway is in Lafourche Parish.

Louisiana Highway 653[edit]

Louisiana Highway 653
Location: Lafourche Parish
Length: 2.58 mi[1] (4.15 km)
Existed: 1955–present

Louisiana Highway 653 (LA 653) runs 2.58 miles (4.15 km) in a north–south direction from a local road south of Bayou Du Mar to LA 182 south of Raceland, Lafourche Parish.[5]

The route heads north from an intersection with Eagle Island Road, a local road, and crosses Bayou Du Mar. It then crosses US 90 via an overpass. The freeway is accessed indirectly by the north service road. LA 653 continues north to an intersection with LA 182 south of Raceland. It is an undivided two-lane highway for its entire length.[3][4][5]

Until recently, LA 653 extended west from its current southern terminus along what is now a private road to a second intersection with LA 182, existing as a loop off of that highway. In this form, LA 653 was part of the original route of the Old Spanish Trail, designated as State Route 2 in 1921 (in the pre-1955 Louisiana Highway system) and US 90 in 1926. This route was bypassed in 1938 when US 90 was moved onto what is now LA 182. LA 182 was then bypassed by the current route of US 90 in 1977 (north of Exit 210) and 1997 (south of Exit 210).

The entire route is in Lafourche Parish.
