A 25-mile-long route serving southern Sarasota County and northwestern Charlotte County, State Road 776 (SR 776) is a loop road that bypasses North Port.

From its western terminus with US 41/SR 45 (Tamiami Trail) near South Venice, SR 776 travels along Englewood Road through Woodmere and North Indiana Avenue in Englewood. After entering Charlotte County, SR 776 continues eastward as McCall Road before turning to the northeast near Charlotte Beach. The State Road crosses Myakka River before becoming El Jobean Road in El Jobean. The eastern terminus of SR 776 is an intersection with the Tamiami Trail in Murdock, just south of North Port.

The northwestern-southeastern segment (along Englewood Road) was originally a piece of SR 775.

A northeastern continuation from the eastern end of SR 776 is Bachman Boulevard, which continues until an intersection with Hillsborough Boulevard at the boundary between Charlotte County and Sarasota County (and the North Port city limit).

Near the eastern end is the Charlotte Sports Complex, the spring training home of the American League Tampa Bay Rays baseball team, and the Florida State League Class A-Advanced affiliate Charlotte Stone Crabs.
