From I-10 West or East bound take I-10 North (which turns into MLK Expressway) to downtown Baton Rouge. At the curve, exit right on Capitol
Access Rd./Dept. of Transportation & Development (Exit 1-E) and as you continue on this exit ramp you will loop back over I-110. If you are
approaching from I-110 South, exit right on Capitol Access Rd. (Exit 1-E).
Whether you approach from the north or south, both exit ramps will direct you onto the Capitol Access Road heading in the direction of the State Capitol.
You will see the Department of Transportation and Development on your right, pass through a traffic light, see the Governor's Mansion on your right, and
see the tower of the State Capitol building above the tree tops of the Arsenal Museum.
