Route 6 runs along 37th Avenue in Hobart until it cuts north on Ripley Street to join the Borman Expressway.

Among the nation’s highways, U.S. Route 66 has become synonymous with Americana, its story captured in songs and television shows as well as marketing campaigns to attract international tourists.
U.S. 6, which rolls through Des Moines, never has enjoyed such recognition. But supporters say that Route 6 has “half the digits and twice the kicks” of its cult-status counterpart.
