SR 158 was previously a 4.7 mile long route linking U.S. 45 at Kushla with U.S. 43 at Saraland. The state route was extended west to Schillinger Road, north of West Mobile, in early 2008. SR 158 follows Industrial Parkway through Saraland as it connects I-65 with the University of Mobile to the west and an industrial park at U.S. 43 (Craft Highway) to the east.
Alabama State Route 158 was completed west from U.S. 45 to the Schillinger Road extension on January 25, 2008. The four lane divided highway represents part of the planned relocation of U.S. 98 north from Moffett Road through Semmes and Wilmer. Interchanges were planned along the highway at Schillinger Road (CR 31) and McCrary Road at SR 217 (Lott Road). Those were dropped from plans due to lack of funding.

Signs were added by November 2008 designating SR 158 as Ken Malone Parkway in Saraland.
