Location:A corridor of 24 cities and towns between Worcester County in central Massachusetts and Providence County in northern Rhode Island. Route 146 is the main highway running north and south between Providence and Worcester, with major intersections at I-95 and I-295 in Rhode Island. Exit 11 on I-90 (Massachusetts Turnpike) gives access to Route 122 and visitor information centers in Worcester and Uxbridge.
Special Features:The American Industrial Revolution had its roots here along some 46 miles of river and canals running from Worcester, Massachusetts, to Providence, Rhode Island. The mills (including Slater Mill), villages, and associated transportation networks in the Blackstone Valley together tell the story of industrialization.
