State Route 6

Home » Guides » Delaware » State Route 6

SR 6 (Millington Road) extends east from MD 291 through Blackiston State Wildlife Management Area through agricultural areas to Blackiston. Suburban development increases along Millington Road, as SR 6 approaches Clayton, where it joins Main Street through the town center. A 1.10 mile overlap with SR 300 takes the route northward into Smyrna along Glenwood Avenue to U.S. 13 (Dupont Boulevard).

Turning south along side U.S. 13 for 0.29 miles, SR 6 resumes an eastern heading along Commerce Street. Commerce Street crosses over SR 1 (Korean War Veterans Memorial Highway) and becomes Woodland Beach Road east of the Smyrna town line. Traversing farm land to SR 9 (Hay Point Landing Road), the eastern extent of SR 6 travels just above sea level along a causeway leading northeast from Serverson Neck to Woodland Beach.

SR 6 was designated by 1936 between Kent County, Maryland and Woodland Beach. The alignment in Smyrna was changed by 1996 to relocate SR 6 away from Commerce Street through Downtown. This resulted in the dog leg along side both U.S. 13 (Dupont Boulevard) and SR 300 (Glenwood venue) west to Smyrna Clayton Boulevard.
