Tennessee[edit]

In the state of Tennessee, U.S. Route 76 is an arterial road that runs east-southeast from downtown Chattanooga to East Ridge and south to Georgia. U.S. 76 runs concurrent with U.S. 41 for its entire length in Tennessee, about 8.9 miles (14.3 km).[2]

Georgia[edit]

In Georgia, the highway traverses the northern part of the state and passes through the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest and Georgia's most mountainous region. From east to west, U.S. 76 passes through Rabun, Towns, Union, Fannin, Gilmer, Murray, Whitfield, and Catoosa counties.

A significant section of US 76 was relocated in Georgia during the 1980s with the old alignment decommissioned first in 1982 from the Hemptown community in Fannin County westward and eastward into Union County in 1988. Extending from west of Blue Ridge to Blairsville, the 35-mile (56 km) stretch of road today is known as Blue Ridge Highway and Old Highway 76 including the city of Morganton. In Morganton, the stretch is joined briefly by SR 60, and, in Blairsville, a small portion of the route is unofficially part of US 19/129. This old alignment from Blairsville to Blue Ridge is approximately 37 miles (60 km) long and has some of Georgia's most scenic views along its eastern end. This stretch was formerly part of SR 2, as well.

US 76 also has other old alignments in Ellijay (by-passed in 1982), Cherry Log, Whitepath (both by-passed in 1989) and south of Blue Ridge (by-passed in 1965). US 76 was also relocated from present-day SR 52 from Ellijay to Chatsworth in 1981 to a less treacherous course along SR 282. Significant curve realignments also occurred along the previously serpentine section from Hiawassee to Clayton from 1988 to 2005. Today, US 76 shares mileage with SR 5, 515, 282, 61, 52, 17, 75, 15, and 3, in addition to SR 2. U.S. highways with common mileage include US 411, 41, 441, and 23.

South Carolina[edit]

U.S. 76 enters South Carolina across the Chattooga River, then continues southeast toward Westminster. This segment is a moderately windy two-lane road. In Westminster, it heads east toward Seneca and Clemson. From Clemson, the road heads southeast toward Anderson, intersecting Interstate 85, then east toward the small towns of Belton and Honea Path. U.S. 76 is a four-lane highway from Westminster to Anderson. In Anderson the road widens to six lanes with a reversible turn lane. After a concurrency with U.S. 178, the road goes to five lanes, and as it goes south towards downtown Anderson, it goes back to four. However, the sections around Seneca, Clemson, and Anderson are well developed with many traffic lights. It is cosigned with U.S. 123 from Westminster to Clemson, S.C. 28 from Seneca to Anderson, and U.S. 178 from Anderson to Honea Path.

Formerly, U.S. 76 followed a longer route from Westminster to Pendleton. From Westminster, the old route followed S-37-13 through the Richland community, then its current alignment to S.C. 59 into downtown Seneca, then S.C. 130 out of Seneca to S-37-1, then its current alignment to S.C. 93 toward Clemson University, then Business S.C. 28 through Pendleton.

From Honea Path, the road heads east to Laurens. This section is a rural two lane road that is not frequently traveled. From Laurens, U.S. 76 roughly parallels I-385 and I-26 as it heads to Columbia. U.S. 76 provides local access to the communities of Laurens, Clinton, Newberry, Prosperity, Chapin and the other smaller towns in the area. In Irmo, U.S. 76 merges with U.S. 176, then continues on to I-26. After the interchange with I-20, U.S. 76 splits off from I-26 and continues into downtown Columbia cosigned with I-126.

In Columbia, U.S. 76 follows Elmwood Ave, Bull St, Gervais St., Millwood Ave., and Devine St., before heading east toward Sumter. The segment from Columbia to Sumter is a four-lane highway and 76 is cosigned with U.S. 378 from the intersection of Bull and Gervais near the University of South Carolina in Columbia all the way to Sumter. From Sumter, U.S. 76 heads northeast to Florence. U.S. 76 is the major road through Florence. U.S. 76 then continues east out of Florence to the small towns of Marion and Mullins, then into North Carolina. It is cosigned with U.S. 301 from Florence to across the Pee Dee River.

North Carolina[edit]

The highway passes through Fair Bluff and becomes concurrent with US 74 from Chadbourn to Wilmington. The highway is mostly four lanes, divided with at-grade and controlled intersections. The speed limit is from 45 mph (72 km/h) to 70 mph (110 km/h). It crosses the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge into Wilmington and continues to Wrightsville Beach via Oleander Drive to the route's eastern terminus. US 76 traverses 80.3 miles (129.2 km) in North Carolina; approximately 54 miles (87 km) concurrent with US 74, between Chadbourn and Wilmington.
