Wisconsin Highway 158 - History


52nd Street in Kenosha was designated as Highway 158 in 1958, at about the same time that American Motors began selling cars after the merger of Nash Motors and Hudson Motors. AMC had their main engine plant on 52nd Street, and also had a vehicle "storage" lot on 88th Avenue (County Highway H, then WIS 192) along the Milwaukee Road railway. 52nd Street was extended to the West to I-94 the following year.

Highway 158 now services downtown Kenosha with the Kenosha Regional Airport, and Dairyland Greyhound Park.
