Louisiana Highway 26 (LA 26) is a state highway that serves Beauregard Parish, Allen Parish, and Jefferson Davis Parish. It spans 76.0 miles (122.3 km), running in a northwest/southeast direction in a rotated "L" shape. The route is signed north-south from its terminus in Lake Arthur at LA 14 to south of Oberlin and signed east-west from that point to its end at U.S. Route 171 and U.S. Route 190 near DeRidder.[1]

Route description[edit]

LA 26 begins at a junction with U.S. Highway 171/U.S. Highway 190 in De Ridder and heads due southeast through Beauregard Parish. In Allen Parish, LA 26 intersects U.S. Highway 165 in Oberlin and turns due south into Jefferson Davis Parish. LA 26 then intersects U.S. Highway 190 east of Elton. LA 26 continues southward and intersects Interstate 10 (Louisiana) and U.S. Highway 90 in Jennings. LA 26 then ends at a junction with LA 14 in Lake Arthur. LA 26 was also part of an old routing for U. S. Highway 190 from Elton to DeRidder.[citation needed]
