The M876 motorway is a motorway in Stirlingshire that runs from Denny to Airth, forming an approach road to the Kincardine Bridge. It was opened in 1980.

The road is eight miles long. It begins at junction 8 (formerly junction 5 until 2011) of the M80 and bypasses Falkirk and Stenhousemuir. It is one of only three motorways in the UK which form a concurrency with another motorway, the M9 which it then leaves again and continues for mile before becoming the A876.[1]

The original Kincardine Bridge was supplemented in 2008 by a second bridge, (the Clackmannanshire Bridge) for traffic towards Alloa. As part of the works, the terminal roundabout Bowtrees Roundabout was replaced with a grade-separated junction, and the A876 beyond the junction has been upgraded to dual carriageway standard .
