2. History

The current incarnation of State Route 160 was created in 1961 while I-15 was under construction in the area. It consisted of just 0.4 miles 0.64 km of road from the I-15 interchange about 1.3 miles 2.1 km south of Beaver northwest to US-91 SR-1, which ran through the center of town as Main Street. At the same time, State Route 161 was also created, serving a similar purpose, but on the interchange 1 mile 1.6 km north of Beaver.

When I-15 was completed north of town in 1964, SR-1 was rerouted as it left Beaver to connect with the new interstate, following the same route as SR-161. As a result, SR-161 was withdrawn to avoid the two state routes overlapping. In 1969, the rest of SR-1 through the town was realigned with I-15. As a result, SR-160 was extended northward to follow the former route of SR-1 along main street north through town, then turning northwest to the interchange at I-15.
