Go to Opelousas then take US 190 east toward Baton Rouge. After you cross the spillway bridge on the other side of Krotz Springs, take a left on LA 81. Follow it for 3-4 miles and make a left on LA 77 (it’s a T intersection). It’s 17 miles from Lottie to Morganza. At Morganza, take LA 1 East. New Roads is about 10 miles from Morganza. LA 10 (the road to the bridge) intersects LA 1 just before you reach New Roads; it’s a left curve. It’s about 12 miles from the intersection of LA 10 to the intersection with US 61 just south of St. Francisville. Nice rural drive.
