The route begins at US 385. After sixteen miles of crossing various roads without entering any incorporated cities, it exits Phillips County and enters Sedgwick County. About a mile later, it reaches the Colorado-Nebraska state line and becomes Nebraska Highway 23.
The route was formerly numbered as SH 176. However, it was changed to match the Nebraska highway number at its northeast end because both SH 176 and I-76 traversed through the same general region of the state.
