Louisiana Highway 408 (LA 408) is a state highway in Louisiana that serves East Baton Rouge Parish. It spans 13.04 miles in a west to east direction. It is known locally as Harding Boulevard and Hooper Road.

Route description

From the west, LA 408 begins along Harding Boulevard one mile west of US 61 (Scenic Highway) on the grounds of Southern University in Baton Rouge. It heads eastward toward US 61 (Scenic Highway) and I-110 (Exit 6), passing to the south of Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport. LA 408 becomes Hooper Road east of a junction with LA 67 and then crosses the Comite River. It then crosses LA 410 (Blackwell Road), LA 946 (Joor Road), and LA 3034 (Sullivan Road). It comes to an end just west of the Amite River at a junction with LA 37 and LA 64 (Greenwell Springs Road).

From its western terminus, LA 408 begins as an undivided, two lane highway before dividing and expanding to four lanes before an railroad overpass on the eastern edge of Southern University. It again becomes an undivided, two lane highway about a half mile past LA 410 (Blackwell Road). It stays that way for the remainder of the route with the exceptions of brief changes near LA 946 (Joor Road) (undivided, five lane highway (with a middle turning lane) and LA 3034 (Sullivan Road) (undivided, three lane highway (with a middle turning lane).
