Wyoming Highway 376 is a highway in the state of Wyoming that travels around the south side of the city of Rock Springs.

Route description[edit]

Wyoming Highway 376 travels counterclockwise from west to east around Rock Springs. It travels from I-80 BUS/US 30 BUS (Dewar Drive) southeast around the southern end of Rock Springs, and turns back north as it nears Wyoming Highway 430. Marchant Street is intersected at 2.35 miles (3.78 km) miles, and provides access to WYO 430 (New Hampshire Street).[2] WYO 376 crosses over WYO 430 at 2.52 miles (4.06 km). Now Highway 376 curves around the eastern side of Rock Springs and reaches its eastern end at Milepost 4.31 miles (6.94 km) where it rejoins I-80 BUS/US 30, now known as 9th Avenue.[2]

History[edit]

Wyoming Highway 376 used to continue in a counterclockwise direction from its current west end to connect back to U.S. Route 187 (Elk Street).[1] Since U.S. Route 191 was routed onto Interstate 80 north of Rock Springs, that portion of Elk Street was unnumbered. However, WYDOT maintains the section of Elk Street between Business Loop I-80 and Interstate 80. It is mile-marked in the highway log as US 191, although signage shows U.S. 191 bypassing the town via Interstate 80. The northeast corner of the circumferential highway is not currently maintained by WYDOT.[1]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Rock Springs, Sweetwater County.
