U.S. Highway 165 – Bastrop to Monroe – Louisiana

Drive America’s Highways for 26 miles south along U.S. Highway 165 from Bastrop to Monroe, Louisiana

We start the video driving west on US-165 in downtown Bastrop, LA. At the west side of Bastrop, we turn south at the intersection with LA-592 to leave town. Generally following Bayou Bartholomew, we continue southwest to Sterlington where, at the intersection with LA-143, we begin to travel generally more south as we follow Bayou DeSiard to the Black Bayou Lake National Wildlife Refuge and into the northern parts of the Monroe Metro area.

Watch:  Historic Route 66 - Hydro to Weatherford - Oklahoma

Crossing Bayou DeSiard to enter Monroe, we cross the intersection with US-80 before reaching the interchange with Interstate 20. Continuing south, we end the video at the intersection with LA-15, a mile or so south of I-20.
