Massachusetts Portion of US Route 6

The Massachusetts Portion of US Route 6 is an iconic roadway spanning a breathtaking 117.5 miles in Massachusetts, stretching from Providence to Wareham alongside I-195 before crossing the Sagamore Bridge and traversing Cape Cod freeway style from Bourne all the way up to Orleans. From there it reverts back to a more traditional surface road until its terminus of Provincetown which interestingly still reflects US 6’s original coast-to-coast goal – Long Beach California!

Established as a National 501(c)(3) charitable organization, as a Public Charity the U.S. Route 6 Tourist Association works to promote economic development and cultural preservation for communities located along “The Grand Army of The Republic Highway.” Spanning 3,652 miles in total, this grand old highway is an integral part of Americana with many sites rich in history waiting to be discovered!  Online at
