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!
