US 6

US 6 traverses the north edge of the state of Indiana from Illinois to Ohio. It starts on the Borman Expressway, but diverges at SR 51 in Lake Station. Except for some four lane stretches in Lake and Porter Counties, it remains a two lane road. It is a fairly major route, however.

In 1932 US 6 was expanded from its short routing in the East to Colorado, and its route over SR 6 was likely intended to match with the Indiana state number. The portion between Ligonier and Westville was built up during much of the thirties. Before this portion was finished, US 6 was routed over the Lincoln Highway for most of its path, serving Goshen, Elkhart and South Bend and returning to its intended line at Westville. This portion was labeled "Temp US-6" at the time.
