Highway 76 is the former routing of U.S. Routes 30 and 287 and still closely parallels their new route on Interstate 80. Highway 76 begins its west end at exit 215 of I-80 / US 30 / US 287 and the eastern terminus of I-80 Business / US 30 Business. Highway 76 heads east, running south of the interstate, but closely paralleling it until the town of Sinclair where I-80 / US 30 / US 287 pass over Highway 76 as it turns north and heads into town as S. 9th Street. At just over 4 miles, WYO 76 turns east on Lincoln Avenue (Exit 219 can be reached by heading west on Lincoln Avenue). Highway 76 continues east through the town of Sinclair as Lincoln Avenue, but now is on the north side of I-80. Shortly after leaving the town center, WYO 76 nears exit 221 of I-80/US 30/US 287 where it ends at 6.54 miles
Exit 215 of Interstate 80 does not mention Highway 76, but there are trailblazer signs along its routing.
In 1938, Highway 76 started out as the designation for Battle Mountain Road, which is the present-day routing of Highway 70 between Baggs and Riverside. At that time, the Highway 70 designation was applied to the current routing of Highway from Walcott Junction south into Saratoga, then south through Riverside into Colorado, then northeast into Laramie via Woods Landing.
The entire route is in Carbon County.
