SBI Route 160 originally ran from Alton to Greenville. In February 1935, this Illinois 160 was changed to Illinois Route 140. In 1959 it was used on the current Illinois 160 from New Baden to Highland; in 1960, it was extended south to New Memphis. In 1965, it was extended north to its current northern terminus. Finally, in 1967, Illinois 160 was extended one last time to its current southern terminus, to a new road for Illinois 15.
