TN 158's original description
1958 TDOT Route Log

Adjustments: By 1971, TN 158 was extended south as new freeway then added to Neyland Drive along the river all the way around to US 11-70 near Third Creek. Note the bridges on the freeway extension were built in 1972 so TN 158 may have been disconnected for a time.
Between 1981-85, TN 158 was extended past I-40 onto Hall of Fame Dr to end at US 441.
About 2009, TN 158 was removed from Hall of Fame Dr when the I-40 re-construction project made it impossible to go from TN 158 south of I-40 to Hall of Fame Dr. Hall of Fame Dr appears to be TN 33 CONN now (per TDOT Traffic map).
About 2014, TN 158 west was truncated to US 11-70 Downtown, as US 11-70 and TN 1 were routed over Neyland Dr.
Posting: Posted as primary routing throughout
Secret US Route Overlay: None
Comment: At its reduced length, TN 158 isn't much more than 2-lane ramps from I-40 now, though it does still have a partial interchange at Summit Hill Dr.
