Route 14 is an 18.5-mile highway in southeastern Massachusetts. It runs from Route 27 in Brockton east to Route 3A in Duxbury, near the coastline.

Route description[edit]

From its western terminus at Route 27 in Brockton, Route 14 goes through Whitman south of the center of the town before going the northeastern corner of East Bridgewater, crossing Route 27 once more. In Hanson, the road is concurrent with Route 58 through the center of town, past Wampatuck Pond. It passes into Pembroke between Oldham Pond and Furnace Pond before passing through the center of town. After another concurrency with Route 53, the road passes into Duxbury, crossing Route 3 before ending at Route 3A west of Duxbury Village.

History[edit]

In 1933, Route 14 was extremely short, with its western terminus at Route 3 (current Route 53). By 1936 it had been extended out to its current routing in Brockton.

The entire route is in Plymouth County.
