HistoryEdit

The route was first designated AR 158 in 1936. The highways was a gravel/stone road from AR 77 east to Luxora.[5] The route was extended west to the Caraway area in 1952, but remained entirely gravel.[6] A segment of AR 158 was added from Bay to Lunsford around 1960. The short route was added to the state highway system in 1979.[1]
