Nevada 756 connects Nevada 88 (Woodfords Road) with the unincorporated town of Gardnerville and U.S. 395 via Centerville Lane in Carson Valley. The state route loops 3.98 miles east from Centerville Road along a stair stepped route north by the Gardnerville Ranchos community and across the East Fork of the Carson River.

Construction started on April 23, 2018 converted the intersection joining Nevada 88 with the west end of Nevada 756 (Centerville Lane) at Centerville into a roundabout. Costing $1 million, work on the 80-foot diameter roundabout wrapped up by Memorial Day weekend.1
