MS 76 is the state highway designation given to those sectiosn of ARC Corridor V that aren't associated with MS 6, US 78, or MS 25.  It is currently planned or under construction between MS 9 and MS 6 in Plantersville, routing south of Tupelo, and another stretch is planned between MS 25 near Fairview and the Alabama line near Red Bay, tying into MS 24 there.  It appears the MS 25 to Alabama portion will be MS 76, but it's unknown right now whether the Pontotoc to Plantersville route will stay MS 76 or become a new routing of MS 6.
