Major Semi Truck Transport Routes in Louisiana
There is approximately 1500 km of interstate highways in Louisiana, and our drivers at Heavy Equipment Transport regularly travel busy instate routes such as:
The I-10 is a major highway through the southern U.S. that runs through Louisiana for approx. 440 km. It connects Lake Charles, Lafayette, and Baton Rouge to the New Orleans metro area before leaving Louisiana. From the Texas border to Lafayette, the route parallels the old US 90. When leaving Layafette, the road heads east-northeast to Baton Rouge, then southeastward to New Orleans. At Crescent City, the I-10 route rejoins the path of US 90 and heads to Slidell. At Slidell, the road turns east to coastal Mississippi.
A few miles east of Marshall in Texas, I-20 enters Louisiana. The first significant settlement it passes is Waskom before it travels through Greenwood. In the north of Greenwood town, it meets the US 79 and US 80, a main east-west state route. From here, the I-20 enters into Shreveport and intersects the Shreveport bypass and south Shreveport bypass on the western side of the city before heading into downtown Shreveport.
The northern terminus of the I-49 is also in Shreveport. The highway first begins its journey in Lafayette and acts as a major thoroughfare for travelers looking to get to the city's heart. On leaving Lafayette, motorists will follow the old Mississippi river bed that lies to the north of Carencro, through Grand Coteau, and to the south of Opelousas. Leaving Opelousas, the terrain is relatively flat and mostly fertile farmland until Alexandria. From Alexandria, the route begins to follow the Red River and bypasses Natchitoches on its way to Shreveport.
