Route description[edit]

Route 763 begins at an intersection with Route 740 in Columbia, heading north on South College Avenue, a five-lane road with a center left-turn lane. The road passes through the University of Missouri campus, passing to the west of Sanborn Field. Past the university, the route intersects Broadway and becomes North College Avenue, passing homes and coming to an intersection with Paris Road, providing access to Route B, which officially begins past its junction with Business Loop 70. Route 763 passes more residences with some businesses and crosses a railroad line before coming to an intersection with I-70 Bus. At this point, Route 763 turns west to form a concurrency with I-70 Bus. on a four-lane divided highway before turning north onto four-lane undivided Rangeline Street. The road passes commercial establishments before becoming a divided highway and reaching an interchange with I-70/US 40. Past this interchange, the route becomes undivided again and passes more businesses. Farther north, Route 763 becomes a divided highway and continues through areas of fields and businesses with some homes. The route reaches a roundabout where it intersects Route VV and Prathersville Road, the latter providing access to the southbound direction of US 63. Northbound motorists on US 63 must use Prathersville Rd to access Route 763. Route 763 becomes a two-lane undivided road and merges into the northbound direction of US 63 at an interchange. Route 763 receives traffic from the southbound direction of US 63.[1]
