SH 115 was originally proposed on July 13, 1926 as a route from north of Amarillo to Stratford into Oklahoma.[2] On December 2, 1931, this route became an extension of SH 9.[3] On June 2, 1932, SH 115 was redesignated on a new route as a short route between Pyote through Wink to Kermit. [4] On October 21, 1952, an extension of SH 115 along FM 703 was signed, but not designated. The extension was officially designated on August 29, 1990, replacing FM 703.
