Travel directions

Western Pennsylvania

US 6 in Ohio comes from Cleveland and crosses the Pennsylvania border at the Pymatuning Reservoir. US 6 then heads as a single-lane road for nearly 40 kilometers to Meadville, a small town on Interstate 79. From Meadville, US 6 is double-numbered for a bit with US 19 heading north. Then US 6 turns off and begins a long but secondary route through hilly northern Pennsylvania. This is a long route with no larger towns. The US 6 here is a single-lane road that runs through almost all places on the route. The hills are partly very densely wooded and have peaks between 700 and 800 meters. The US 6 runs parallel to the border with the state hereNew York. At Mansfield there is a connection to Interstate 99.

Eastern Pennsylvania

About 50 kilometers east of I-99 you reach the valley of the Susquehanna River at Towanda. From here, US 6 follows the Susquehanna River east to Tunkhannock. This route is single-lane and leads through quite a few villages, but not through larger towns. Then one reaches the conurbation of Scranton. The US 6 forms the northwest approach road to Susquehanna, the road has been developed here as a 2×2 divided highway. US 6 passes through northern Scranton and partially coincides here with Interstate 81.

After Scranton, US 6 forms a highway itself, the Casey Highway, which takes a 25-mile bypass along a series of suburbs northeast of Scranton. East of this, the US 6 is single-lane and travels another 70 kilometers to the valley of the Delaware River. This route passes through Honesdale but is otherwise a quiet route through densely wooded hill country. At Milford you first cross Interstate 84 and then US 6 runs along with US 209 along the Delaware River, which forms the border with New Jersey here. In Matamoras, one crosses I-84 again and the road crosses the Delaware River, which forms the border with New York State. US 6 in New York then continues through Port Jervis to Middletown.


US 6 was created in 1926. The terminus at that time was Erie, in 1932 the route was extended further west. The route to Erie branched off from the current route at Union City, then continued via State Route 97 and US 19. US 6 was not of great importance in Pennsylvania because there are no major cities on the route. Interstate 80 in Pennsylvania had the same problem, but was built further south because it was a shorter route from New York City to Cleveland than the corridor via US 6.

Delaware (river)

The location of the Delaware

The Delaware (English: Delaware River) is a river in the western United States. The Delaware rises in New York and then forms a part of the border between New York and Pennsylvania. After this, the river forms the border between Pennsylvania and New Jersey and finally between New Jersey and the state of Delaware. The river empties into Delaware Bay, which eventually overflows into the Atlantic Ocean. The state of Delaware is named after the river. The river was discovered by Henry Hudson in 1609, who was in the service of the Dutch. The Dutch called the river the South River and formed the border between the colonies of New Netherland and New Sweden. The name Delaware comes from the first governor of Virginia, Thomas West, Baron De La Warr.
