Plimoth Plantation Highway is a short unnumbered two-lane freeway with plastic stanchions posted on a rumbled asphalt median in Plymouth in the US state of Massachusetts. The highway was created in 1951 as a segment of Massachusetts Route 3 between the modern highway and its previous alignment. The current name for the roadway was designated by the state in 1969.

Route description

The highway begins at exit 4 off Route 3, a partial interchange which is accessible only from the southbound side from which there is a left exit. Motorists on Plimoth Plantation Highway headed toward Route 3 can enter that highway northbound only. However, motorists may use exit 5 in order to reverse direction and ultimately travel southbound on Route 3. The highway proceeds east, serving Plimoth Plantation, Plymouth Beach and the village of Chiltonville. The highway ends at a special intersection in White Horse Beach and Manomet at Route 3A.

History

The first segment of Route 3 opened up in 1951 from what is now exit 9 to exit 4 and used Plimoth Plantation Highway temporarily to detour around the old Route 3 in Kingston and Plymouth, now renamed Route 3A, until 1957 when Route 3 south of exit 4 opened and assumed its current alignment. An act naming the two-mile (3.2 km) spur Plimoth Plantation Highway was approved on April 3, 1969, 18 years after the highway had opened.[2] The act references the highway as being exit 40, the old exit number before the Massachusetts Highway Department renumbered the exit in 1978.
