Waterloo Regional Road 6

Waterloo Regional Road 6 is an east-west arterial road in the Region of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. It passes through both Wilmot Township and the city of Kitchener, with its course and name changing several times.

Wilmot Township

Waterloo Regional Road 6 begins at Waterloo Regional Road 51 (Foundry Street) in the village of Baden, where it is known as Gingerich Road. Travelling northeastward, it merges with Waterloo Regional Road 1 at the eastern edge of the village and takes the name of Waterloo Regional Road 1 within Baden, Snyder's Road East. From this junction its course changes east heading towards Kitchener, passing through the village of Petersburg along the way.


Upon entering Kitchener, Waterloo Regional Road 6 takes the name Highland Road and becomes a major throughfare through the western half of the city. It has major intersections with Waterloo Regional Road 58 (Fischer-Hallman Road) and Waterloo Regional Road 50 (Westmount Road) before meeting with Queen Street South near St. Mary's General Hospital.

From here, Waterloo Regional Road 6 turns left onto Queen Street South and enters downtown Kitchener. At Waterloo Regional Road 53 (Courtland Avenue), it turns right and briefly has a concurrency with R.R. 53 before turning left onto Benton Street, which is the heart of the city's Oktoberfest celebrations each year.

At Waterloo Regional Road 15 (King Street), Benton Street becomes Frederick Street; it is here that the headquarters of the Regional Municipality of Waterloo are located, as well as several provincial court houses and the Frederick Mall. After passing Waterloo Regional Road 56 (River Road), Frederick Street curves northeastward again, before it (as well as Waterloo Regional Road 6) ends at Waterloo Regional Road 55 (Victoria Street), also known as Highway 7, which continues eastward to Guelph.
