State Highway 158 or SH 158 is a state highway running from near Goldsmith, Texas eastward to Ballinger, Texas.

Route description[edit]

SH 158 begins at an intersection with State Highway 302/Farm to Market Road 181 northwest of Odessa in unincorporated Ector County. The highway runs in an northeast–southwest direction until Philips Plant Road, turning into a more east–west direction. SH 158 enters the town of Goldsmith, intersecting with Farm to Market Road 866. The highway resumes its rural route and has an interchange with U.S. Route 385 north of Odessa. SH 158 turns into a southeast–northwest direction near the Ector–Midland county line. The highway shares a short overlap with State Highway 191 in west Midland. The overlap ends at an interchange with Loop 250, with SH 158 following Loop 250 until Interstate 20. The highway leaves Interstate 20 in southeast Midland, running southeast–northwest through rural Midland County. SH 158 runs through Glasscock County and Garden City before entering Sterling County. SH 158 shares an overlap with U. S. Route 87, with the two highways running through Sterling City together. SH 158 leaves US 87 at the eastern edge of Sterling City, running in a north–south direction before resuming an east–west direction. The highway runs through Coke County, serving the towns of Robert Lee and Bronte and later enters Runnels County. SH 158 ends at an intersection with U.S. Route 67/U.S. Route 83 in the town of Ballinger.

History[edit]

SH 158 was designated by 1931 on a route starting at Robert Lee travelling through Bronte then turning northeast, terminating at Abilene. The route was slowly built, being completed in 1939. In the 1939 general redescription, an additional non-connected section was added, beginning 20 miles west of Robert Lee in Sterling City and travelling west through Garden City and Midland, terminating just west of Goldsmith.

In 1948, the section from Bronte to Abilene was transferred to U.S. Route 277, and was instead rerouted southeast to Ballinger, replacing State Highway 109 from Bronte to Ballinger.[2] The two disconnected portions were finally connected in 1969 when Farm to Market Road 387, completed in 1959, was re-designated.[3]
