I think you mean getting off I-12 at Denham Springs, though I-12 is definitely the "non-New Orleans" alternative to I-10.

US-190/US-61 is the Airline Highway. I used to go to a trade show located on it several years ago and seem to recall it is stop-and-go heavy traffic. I actually got off I-12 with a pop-up over 20 years ago at the Airline Highway exit and had a horrendous time moving around and getting back on the interstate around rush hour. I can't say I have found any good way through Baton Rouge, though I have not tried it in the middle of the night [emoticon].

As long as you avoid rush hour going west thru Baton Rouge on I12 & I10 is not a problem. Weekends are even easier. US190 is street level city traffic.

Coming in to town get 1150 am for traffic reports. If it sounds bad take a look at the Plaquemine ferry. It leaves going west at the 15 and 45 min mark. Jump on hwy 1 to get back to I-10. It’s kind of out of the way, so it’s probably not practical if you’re in a hurry. If you do, try Louisiana Bayou Bistro in Brusly (brewly) for lunch.
Looking for good seafood? Don’t waste your money in Texas. That’s for bbq. Stop at Mike Anderson’s. You can park for the night at Faar Park fairly close by.
If you take 190 don’t go after 3:00. Be sure to stop at Billy’s in Krotz Springs and treat yourselves to some boudin (boodan ) balls. Watch your speed from there to I-49.
It’s crawfish season! Yummy from most any place along the route.
Have a good trip!
