Louisiana Highway 946 (LA 946) is a state highway in Louisiana that serves East Baton Rouge Parish. It spans 5.29 miles (8.51 km) in a south to north direction. It is known locally as Joor Road but was known as Pearce's Lane in the early part of the 20th century.
From the south, LA 946 begins at an intersection with LA 37 (Greenwell Springs Road) in Baton Rouge. It heads northeasterly and crosses the Comite River before coming to an end at LA 408 (Hooper Road). Joor Road continues northward to an end at LA 64 (Greenwell Springs-Port Hudson Road)
LA 946 is an undivided, five-lane highway (with a middle turning lane) from LA 37 (Greenwell Springs Road) until about a half-mile before the Comite River, where it narrows to an undivided, two-lane highway. It again expands to an undivided, five-lane highway (with a middle turning lane) near its northern terminus at LA 408 (Hooper Road).
