U.S. 6 was originally proposed in 1925 as a short route from Provincetown west to Brewster, New York, mostly following the alignment of New England Interstate Route 3. It was extended to Erie, Pennsylvania in 1926 and 1927, and in 1931 it absorbed most of U.S. Route 32 and the entire route of U.S. Route 38 in an extension to Greeley, Colorado. From 1937, when it was extended to Long Beach, California, to 1964 US 6 was the longest U.S. Route. Since 1964, U.S. Route 20 has been the longest U.S. Route. However, U.S. 20 is not signed and does not officially exist within Yellowstone National Park making two separate sections of US 20.[2]. Therefore, U.S. Route 6 is the longest continuous U.S. Route.

Legal definition of Route 6

The modern U.S. 6 in California is a short, two lane, north-south surface highway from Bishop to the Nevada state Line. Prior to a 1964 highway renumbering project U.S. 6 extended to Long Beach, California along what is now U.S. Route 395, State Route 14, Interstate 5, Interstate 110/State Route 110), and State Route 1. Despite the renumbering having removed all freeway portions it is still part of the California Freeway and Expressway System.

Starting in the spring of 1983 U.S. 6 was a discontinuous route for almost one year, due to a massive landslide that destroyed the town of Thistle. During this time traffic was routed on 2 detours. One, via Salina, Utah, was over 200 miles long and took traffic almost 100 aerial miles from the route of U.S. 6. The other, via Duchesne, Utah, was shorter. However, this detour traversed steep grades and was not recommended for trucks. The night before the rebuilt U.S. 6 opened, the highway stubs at either side of the landslide were filled with tens of miles of trucks. The drivers tired of the lost revenue from the long detours. The landslide remains the most costly in the history of the United States[4].
