Rhode Island Portion of US Route 6

Traversing 26.5 miles in Rhode Island, the Rhode Island Portion of US Route 6 is an adventure that begins on the western border with Killingly Connecticut and ends at Seekonk Massachusetts to its east. Along this journey you’ll drive through Providence where six major roads intertwine – Route 10, US 1A, I-95, I-195 and two of our favorites: the historic US 44 & charming little ol’ US 6!
