The Nebraska Portion of US Route 6 takes adventurers on a captivating journey beginning in Colorado and ending near the great city of Omaha! Along its path, travelers find themselves passing through Imperial, Culbertson and McCook before arriving at Hastings. From there US 34 veers off to one side as US 6 continues eastward until reaching Lincoln where it transitions from West “O” Street to Sun Valley Boulevard then finally Cornhusker Highway breezing by Milford all while paralleling I-80’s more mundane route. At Gretna our daring expeditionists bravely turn north onto the majestic West Dodge Expressway eventually becoming Dodge street escorting them right into downtown Omaha – what an epic voyage!
Starting in Nebraska, it takes a scenic tour of downtown Omaha before joining I-480 for its final Nebraskan stretch. Its grand finale is an incredible 1966 girder bridge crossing the Missouri River that replaced the iconic Ak-Sar-Ben Bridge to link Council Bluffs and Omaha. Touring this route will take you from The Plains all the way across America’s mighty heartland!
