In Providence, it is routed along parallel sets of one-way streets to I-195/US 6. Eastbound traffic follows Canal Street, Steeple Street, Dyer Street, Delta Street, and South Water Street. Westbound traffic follows North Main Street and South Main Street. US 44 is multiplexed with I-195/US 6 across the Seekonk River to East Providence. On the other side of the river, US 44 is called Taunton Avenue and runs east into Massachusetts.
