Massachusetts Route 103 is a continuation of R.I. Route 103. It begins in Swansea at the Warren line, heading eastward as Wilbur Avenue. It crosses the Cole River before entering the village of Ocean Grove. As the route enters Somerset it crosses the Lees River, just east of its junction with Exit 4 of I-195. (Part of the exit structure is linked to Lees River Avenue, which ends at Route 103 just west of the rest of the exit.) From there it continues eastward, north of Brayton Point and the Dominion Resources power station before Wilbur Avenue turns northward, intersecting with Riverside Avenue at the end of Brayton Avenue, where all three roads formerly met the Slade's Ferry Bridge. Route 103 then continues northward along Riverside Avenue to its end at intersection with U.S. Route 6 and Route 138 just west of the Brightman Street Bridge. Route 138 continues northward along Riverside Avenue from this point.
Before the removal of the Slade's Ferry Bridge, Route 103 traveled along that bridge, and ended in Fall River where Routes 6 and 138 meet.
