|Route outline (key)|
The road starts at traffic lights on the A665, which passes for Whitefield's bypass. The road to the east, to the A56, is the B6198; this has never been part of the A667 and this crossroads has always been the eastern end of the A667.
The road heads west through the suburbs before bearing right to pass between open fields and a golf course. The road then remains largely rural, although it is lined with houses for short distances. After crossing a bridge over a disused railway cutting the road bends right again before bearing left to cross the River Irwell and become urban once more. It passes through the suburb of Stoneclough where it bears left to go under the Manchester to Bolton railway line before ending at traffic lights on the A666 just to the east of Kearsley Interchange.
