Route description

Route 73 begins at an intersection with Route 74, approximately 0.6 miles (0.97 km) east of the Ticonderoga–Larrabees Point Ferry to New York. The route runs southeast into the town of Orwell, where it crosses Route 22A. Route 73 continues due east out of Orwell and into the town of Sudbury, where it meets Route 30. Route 73 turns north to join Route 30, and the two routes share a short concurrency before Route 73 splits back off to the east. It continues into the town of Brandon, intersecting with U.S. Route 7 in the town center. Route 73 briefly overlaps US 7 before splitting off to the northeast. The highway continues into the village of Forestdale (still in Brandon) where it meets the southern terminus of Route 53. Route 73 continues to the east in the town of Goshen before coming to an end at Route 100 in Rochester. The section from Brandon to Rochester was VT 115 and the section from Brandon to Orwell was VT F-10.
