The following is a list of state highways in the U.S. state of Louisiana designated in the 1-50 range prior to the 1955 Louisiana Highway renumbering. All were part of the original 98 state highways authorized by the state legislature in 1921.[1]


Louisiana State Route 3[edit]

State Route 3
Location: Baton RougeEast Carroll Parish
Length: 153.4 mi (246.9 km)

Louisiana State Route 3 ran 153.4 miles (246.9 km) in a north–south direction from Baton Rouge to the Arkansas state line north of Lake Providence. The designation existed in two segments as the roadway passed through the state of Mississippi between a point north of St. Francisville and Vidalia (opposite the Mississippi River from Natchez, Mississippi). North of Vidalia, the route also passed through St. Joseph, Newellton, and Tallulah.[2]

In 1926, the southern segment became part of US 61, and the northern segment became part of US 65 when the numbered U.S. Highway system was created.[3][4] Route 3 remained co-signed with its U.S. counterparts until the 1955 Louisiana Highway renumbering, which eliminated such overlaps.[2] A portion of the route north of Lake Providence bypassed in the 1930s was designated as Route 3-D while it remained in the state highway system.[5]
