My son attended college at LSU so I've been between NJ and LA many times and I tried to take a different route each time. I would avoid I-59 if you can. I've always had issues on it due to the lousy road surface. In some sections it seems that they put asphalt on top of concrete and most of the asphalt wore off making the highway one long rumble strip. One trip it was so bad the vibrations broke the hinge off the refrigerator and the last trip when I stopped I had slide issues that the vibrations most likely contributed to. Google shows the shortest route via I-85 to Montgomery and then I-65 to Mobile then I-10 to the Big Easy. I went this way before and it wasn't too bad.

Beauty is the eye of the beholder. I 59 (the part you will be traveling) is a fine Interstate highway. A friend of mine lives in Baton Rouge and commutes to the motor coach resort in Sevierville, TN quite a few times per year. He just arrived less than 1 week ago. His report on I 59 is that it is the way he goes and the road is in fine condition.

If you go on 59, please post here so we can understand your view of the road.

The only problem with grades you will have is if you want them - there is rolling terrain between Atlanta and Birmingham and it flattens out beyond that. I-20
to I-59 is the only route I have taken, except for the time I took the Natchez Parkway.
The roads were fine on I-20 and I-59.

I65 to Mobile if fine and just rolling hills early. I'd go through Montgomery.
