About Us

The PA Route 6 Alliance, a 501(c3) corporation, was established in 2003 to manage the PA Route 6 Heritage Corridor and to implement the Management Action Plan, branding and marketing plans, community development programs and other planning efforts along the corridor. The Alliance includes representatives from all 11 counties, 9 convention and visitor bureaus, 4 heritage areas, local development districts, local business owners, Chambers of Commerce and other interested parties along the corridor.

Through the leadership of the PA Route 6 Alliance, citizens from 11 counties are joining together to preserve, enhance and promote the treasured resources that contribute to their shared sense of place. Using the corridor’s strategic Management Action Plan as their guide, they are initiating heritage tourism development strategies that will build more sustainable local economies and enhance the quality of life in every community along Pennsylvania Route 6.

OUR MISSION

US Route 6 in Pennsylvania, through the eleven counties of  Crawford, Erie, Warren, McKean, Potter, Tioga, Bradford, Wyoming,  Lackawanna, Wayne and Pike, is the focus of an effort to preserve,  enhance and promote the transportation heritage of one of the nation's  first transcontinental highways; to sustain and enhance the small rural  communities linked by the highway; and to preserve and enhance the  natural, scenic beauty of one of America's favorite "road trips".

The Pennsylvania Route 6 Heritage Corridor offers a broad range of  employment and entrepreneurial opportunities and exceptional  experiences. Public and private infrastructure make the corridor  accessible and provide economic opportunities for strengthening  communities while enhancing natural, cultural, scenic, recreational, and  historical resources. A strategic, unified partnership guides the  management of these resources, preserving and enhancing the Pennsylvania  Route 6 heritage and quality of life throughout the corridor.
