In the old system, the road was known under the name of E23. During the mid eighties of the 20th century the route was added to the new road numbering system as the E96. In the year of 2000, the route was removed from the road numbering system. The reason why is not known. The road was still known under the name of E96. At the urging of the Turkish Government in 2005, the route was once again been assigned to the number E96.
