SBI Route 157 originally ran from Cahokia to Glen Carbon. It was then extended to the Missouri state line at the Jefferson Barracks Bridge in 1946; this was undone by 1958. In 1965, the northern terminus was moved to Hamel, replacing Bypass U.S. Route 66, which itself was U.S. 66 proper prior to 1957.
