Route 53 is a south north state highway in southeastern
Massachusetts.Route 53 follows the former routing of the Kingston
to Quincy section of Route 3 which was moved onto the Southeast
Expressway and Pilgrim's Highway expressway when they were
fully completed in 1963. The remaining former sections of Route 3
became extensions of Route 3A.For a period of time, from at least
the early 1930s through 1965, a mile of what is now Route 53,
between Derby Street and Main Street (Route 228), was also
coextensive with Route 128. In 1965 that route was cut back to the
Braintree Split, and again in 1997 it was officially cut back to
the I-95/I-93 junction in Canton.
