US 160 in Kansas was designated in Kansas by 1930, replacing K-46 west of K-22 (which was also re-designated as US 83 at the same time) and replaced K-12 east of K-22/US 83. Originally, US 160 turned straight west from Johnson City to into Colorado. By 1955, US 160 was relocated (the Colorado section was re-designated CO 116, the Kansas section was turned back). In addition, 160 ran through Belvidire, Sun City, and Lake City, but was bypassed by a straight short-cut.

In 1999, US 160 between US 169 and US 69 was re-designated as US 400, and the former K-96 between Independence and Crestline was re-designated as US 160.
