If are driving from the airport, exit the airport and take the Airport Access Road to I-10 eastbound. Follow I-10 and at the "split" of I-10 and I-610, stay to the right going to the "Central Business District." As you proceed toward the Mississippi River, there will be a sign and a right exit for I-10 to "Slidell." DO NOT TAKE THIS EXIT. Keep going straight toward the river. The expressway is now technically called U S 90 West or the "Pontchartrain Expressway." Take the "Carondelet/St. Charles exit. This is a short exit with a stoplight at the base of the exit. Cross Carondelet and at the next light, make a left turn onto St. Charles Avenue. Go through the stoplight to "Lee Circle." Make the first right exit which is "Andrew Higgins Drive" (formerly Howard Avenue). Get in the left lane, and go one block. At the stoplight turn left onto "Camp Street." Proceed down Camp Street until you reach "600 Camp." Parking is limited, but there are some commercial garages on the left, just past the courthouse and in the general area.

If coming from east of town, take I-10 westbound and exit onto the Pontchartrain Expressway going toward the river. Then follow the instructions above. (See Maps 1 & 2)

If you are taking a cab to the courthouse or your hotel, the cost is approximately $30.00.
