U.S. Highway 70 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (325 words)
United States Highway 70 is an east-west United States highway that runs for 2,385 miles (3,838 km) from eastern North Carolina to east-central Arizona.
Prior to the completion of the Interstate system, Highway 70 was sometimes referred to as the "Broadway of America," due to its status as one of the main east-west thoroughfares in the nation.
US 70N begins in Lebanon, just east of Nashville, and ends in Crossville; US 70S begins in Pegram, just west of Nashville, and ends in Sparta (a few miles west of Crossville).
Utah Highways Pages - US 6 (3013 words)
US 6 was not in the original US Highway plan created back in 1925, but was added in the late 1930s, a period which saw considerable route additions and re-alignments both in Utah and nationwide.
US 6 moved to I-70 from Green River eastward as soon as the freeway completed, but it was not overlaid on I-15 between Santaquin and Spanish Fork until 1996.
US 50's route between Delta and Green River is the shorter of the two: 179 miles versus 210 for US 6, and US 50 is faster, because nearly 70 miles of it are on the 75mph I-70.
