|Route outline (key)|
The B73 is a medium-length B-road in central Northern Ireland.
The road starts at traffic lights on the A29 in the centre of Cookstown and heads east along Molesworth Street, soon reaching open country. There are then a couple of straight sections linked by sharp corners before the road reaches a T-junction and TOTSOs left.
The road continues east and soon reaches Coagh. It meets the B18 at a mini-roundabout on the near side of town, after which it crosses the Ballinderry River to another mini-roundabout, where it crosses the B160. The road then continues east across the fields via Drumtenny to Newport Trench. The B73 ends without warning in this village, apparently at the road junction with Ardboe Road. An unclassified road continues ahead. Older maps show the B73 as continuing to end on the shore of Lough Neagh at the Battery but this has been turned into tourist facilities so cutting the road back.
