Louisiana Highway 648[edit]

Louisiana Highway 648
Location: Thibodaux
Length: 2.343 mi[40] (3.771 km)
Existed: 1955–present

Louisiana Highway 648 (LA 648) runs 2.34 miles (3.77 km) in a southwest to northeast direction from LA 20 south of Thibodaux to LA 308 east of Thibodaux.[41]

LA 648 heads east from LA 20 on Percy Brown Road, crossing from Terrebonne Parish into Lafourche Parish. It immediately turns to the northeast and briefly passes through the southeast corner of Thibodaux. At the end of its route, LA 648 intersects LA 1, crosses a bridge over Bayou Lafourche, and terminates immediately afterward at LA 308, which follows the opposite bank. LA 648 is an undivided two-lane highway for its entire length.

The entire above route appears on current La DOTD maps as LA 648 and is signed accordingly in the field; however, the departmental GIS and LRS systems still show most of the route under its former designation of LA 648 Spur. Prior to the 2000s, LA 648 turned northwest from Percy Brown Road onto Acadia Road in Thibodaux and headed back to a terminus at LA 20, existing as a short loop off of that highway. The remainder of Percy Brown Road running northeast to LA 308 was designated as LA 648 Spur, now absorbed by the main route.

Location: St. Charles
Length: 0.070 mi[1] (0.11 km)

In the pre-1955 state highway system, LA 649 was designated as State Route C-2137.[44] LA 649 was created in the 1955 Louisiana Highway renumbering[15] and was originally routed across a now-demolished bridge located 0.4 miles (0.64 km) downstream from the current bridge.[43][45] The St. Charles Swing Bridge was constructed in 1996[46] and aligned with the St. Charles Bypass Road that provides a shortcut to LA 24 south of Thibodaux.[42]

The entire highway is in St. Charles, Lafourche Parish.
