U.S. Highway 6 shield in California

U.S. Highway 6 is a largely east-west United States Highway that connects Bishop, California with Provincetown, Massachusetts on Cape Cod.

In 1964, it was decommissioned south of Bishop as part of a California state highway renumbering, leaving U.S. Highway 20 the longest US highway.

Massachusetts

US 6 runs approximately 118 miles in Massachusetts. It is a surface expressway or 4-lane road for approximately its first 54 miles from the Rhode Island line to the Cape Cod Canal, except for a section in New Bedford, where it runs along two one-way city streets. After crossing the canal via the Sagamore Bridge, it becomes a 4-lane freeway from Bourne to Dennis at the Exit 9A/B cloverleaf (Mile 78), then reduces to a Super-2 freeway with plastic stanchions posted on a small asphalt median. It remains like this until Orleans, where the freeway ends at a large rotary (Mile 90.6). Through Eastham and North Truro, US 6 is a 4-lane surface street. Through Wellfleet and southern Truro, US 6 is a former 3-lane road converted to 2 lanes with shoulders. In Provincetown, US 6 ends as it started in the state, as a surface expressway once again until it comes to an end at Route 6A at the Cape Cod National Seashore. Interestingly, since the end of the highway is on Federally-owned park land, there is currently no "End" marker.

US-6 Massachusetts Trivia

The freeway and Super-2 sections of US-6 on Cape Cod are known as the Mid-Cape Highway. The Super-2 section has a secondary, less-formal name of "Suicide Alley", due to the high number of fatalities from head-on collisions before the median improvements were constructed. (When the Super-2 stretch was first built, it was marked with passing zones like any other 2-lane highway. The small asphalt/stanchion median was built in stages beginning in 1989 and finishing in 1992.) The Mid-Cape Highway carries a speed limit of 55 on the standard freeway and 50 on the Super-2.

A speed limit is the maximum speed allowed by law for vehicles on a road. ...


When US-6 was first routed through Provincetown in 1926, the highway was signed along the rather narrow Commercial Street. After the Provincetown US-6 bypass was built, congestion and the increasing size of automobiles forced the town to post most of Commercial Street (all but the easternmost mile which hits the Truro line) as one-way westbound. Route 6A, when signed, was placed along the paralleling Bradford Street instead. There was an alternate plan at the time to make Bradford one-way westbound and Commercial one-way eastbound (which would have made both roads Route 6A), but this was rejected, as the town decided instead to let incoming traffic through the heavy Commercial Street business district. 1926 (MCMXXVI) was a common year starting on Friday (link will take you to calendar). ... Massachusetts State Highway 6A is the name for parts of former US 6 on Cape Cod. ...


US-6 was briefly signed on current I-195 between Route 105 and Route 28, however, when I-195 was completed, and the I-195 designation took over that section of freeway, US-6 reverted back to its older route. Looking east at I-195 in Providence, Rhode Island around 1959. ...

History

US 6 was one of the first national arteries proposed in 1926 and went only as far west as the Hudson River in New York. It has since been extended westward, mostly at the expense of other routes including most of old U.S. Highway 32 between Joliet, Illinois and Council Bluffs, Iowa and old U.S. Highway 38 between Omaha, Nebraska and Denver, Colorado before 1937, after which it was extended to Southern California. In California it was a north-south highway, violating the convention that only east-west routes have even numbers. 1926 (MCMXXVI) was a common year starting on Friday (link will take you to calendar). ...

Oddities

  • US 6 takes a semi-circular route through the Cape Cod Peninsula (dictated by topography). Someone leaving Provincetown, Mass. on 6 west will actually head east, then south, before finally turning west. Formerly, it took both sides along the Cape Cod canal (and was signed as "BYPASS 6"), but is now routed only on the north side (The south side is now signed "TO 6" from the Sagamore to the Bourne Bridge).
  • It is often reported to be a violation of the numbering system because it is wholly south of numerous other US routes with higher even numbers (8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, and 26). In fact, in north-central Ohio, part of it (from Cleveland, Ohio to Fremont, Ohio) lies to the north of U.S. Highway 20, the lowest-numbered even U.S. Highway that intersects US 6. At this longitude, US 6 is the northernmost U.S. Highway, though US 2 was once signed through Canada.
  • Until 1964, it crossed U.S. Highway 66 twice (in Joliet and Los Angeles), and even crossed Interstate 10 (also in Los Angeles). The highway originally began in Long Beach, then diversed west into San Pedro then north along Figueroa Street through Downtown Los Angeles then shared several highways through Southern California, including the present-day Antelope Valley Freeway.
  • Between Ely, Nevada and Grand Junction, Colorado it was duplexed with U.S. Highway 50 before Interstate 70 was completed in Utah. US 6 takes the older route through Price, Utah.
  • Its route through greater Los Angeles once had its southern terminus farther east than its entrance into California on the California-Nevada state line. Even today its current 'western' terminus in Bishop, California, lies farther east than its entrance into California from the Nevada state line. It is currently recognized and signed as a north-south route in California, but it was apparently east-west until it was truncated to U.S. Highway 395.[1]
  • Although its general direction east of the California state line points it toward the San Francisco Bay Area, the steep Sierra Nevada made any extension toward any destination west of the Sierra Nevada (most likely along present-day California State Highway 120 through Tioga Pass to Manteca) at least as far south as Bakersfield impractical due to winter closures, engineering costs or environmental degradation.
  • Taking US 6 all the way from upstate New York to the West Coast is one of the early, unrealized goals of the narrator character (Sal Paradise) in the famous "beat" novel On the Road by Jack Kerouac.
