SH 16 begins with an interchange at I-25, which also provides access to Frontage Road. From here, it heads southeast, crosses Fountain Creek, and intersects US 85. From there, it extends east several miles eastward and ends at SH 21, known there as Powers Boulevard.
The route was established in 1971 from I-25 east to US 85, totaling about one mile. It was gradually extended until 2007, when Mesa Ridge Parkway was added to the route, and the route length almost tripled.
