In Indiana, US Route 6 runs east-west across the northern part of the state, serving as the second main east-west US Route south of the Michigan border (US Route 20 is the northernmost such route). US Route 6 enters Indiana from the west as a concurrency with Interstates 80 and 94. Across most of Lake County, US Route 6 follows the two Interstates on a freeway, but creates a business alignment just to the south to serve as a surface road in Chicago's Indiana suburbs. US Route 6 leaves Lake County at Hobart to head east on a surface highway connecting a series of small towns, staying south of South Bend and Elkhart, but north of Fort Wayne. It leaves the state into Ohio, approaching Bryan, Ohio.
My photo of US Route 6 is in Hobart, where US Route 6 starts cutting north to join Interstates 80 and 94 west. This is the southern end of the transfer of US Route 6 south along Indiana Route 51 so US Route 6 can head east on its own surface road. This photo was taken looking north at a sign for northbound traffic on US Route 6 and Indiana Route 51, heading away from the junction where US Route 6 diverts east and Indiana Route 130 begins heading south. You can see an Indiana Route 51 trailblazer in the background, as both US Route 6 and Indiana Route 51 follow the road shown in the picture.
