Route 765 is a short state highway in Sedalia, Missouri, in Pettis County. The route begins at an interchange with Limit Avenue in Sedalia (designated as U.S. Route 65). The route runs eastward along West Main Street and north along North Ohio Avenue through downtown Sedalia. The route as it approaches its northern terminus becomes rural, after being primarily commercial and residential. Route 765's northern terminus is at an interchange with U.S. Route 65's freeway segment. The last distance to the northern terminus is one-way, with northbound Route 765 merging into U.S. Route 65 northbound.

Route description[edit]

Route 765 begins at an interchange with U.S. Route 65 (Limit Avenue) near Liberty Park in downtown Sedalia, Missouri. The route heads eastward along West Main Street, passing local businesses and paralleling nearby railroad tracks, used by Amtrak. After the intersection with Park Avenue, Route 765 bends to the southeast. The route remains in this pattern for a distance, passing the Amtrak station in Sedalia at the intersection with North Kentucky Avenue. At the intersection with South Ohio Avenue, Route 765 turns northward off of West Main Street and turns north onto North Ohio Avenue. (The right-of-way of West Main becomes East Main Street after.) The highway passes to the east of the Amtrak station, crossing the tracks in the process. After the intersection with West/East Jefferson Streets, Route 765 turns from a commercial street to primarily residential. North Ohio Avenue bends to the northeast. After passing Henry Street, Route 765 makes a gradual bend to the northwest. At this point, the highway becomes rural, turning northward at the intersection with North Osage Avenue. Passing a dirt yard, Route 765 forks into a one-way highway, heading northward past mobile homes and some residences before the northbound lanes merge back into U.S. Route 65 north. This merge is the northern terminus of Route 765.[2]
