U.S. Highway 3 is a north-south United States highway that runs from its southern terminus at U.S. Highway 20 in Boston through New Hampshire to its terminus at the Canadian border. In New Hampshire parts of US 3 are known as "Daniel Webster Highway". In some places it is a freeway, in northern New Hampshire as part of Interstate 93 on the Franconia Notch Parkway, and in southern New Hampshire is part of the Everett Turnpike. In Massachusetts it is a freeway from Burlington, Massachusetts to the New Hampshire border and for two miles (3 km) as part of Interstate 95. While the southern terminus has not changed there have been different northern termini to this route, see History of Termini.
