Creation: An original state highway, running from TN 2 (now US 11-64) Ooltewah to TN 1 (now US 70) Kingston.
Adjustments: In 1927 or 1928, TN 58 was routed away from Ooltewah and instead sent to TN 27 (now Market St) Chattanooga. The old route used Gamble Rd/Old Hwy 58 in Meigs County and Ooltewah-Georgetown Rd in Hamilton County.
If TN 58 ever used Centerpoint Rd/Sliger Ln (no longer crosses Big Sewee Ck)/Old Ten Mile Rd north of Decatur to Roane County, it stopped doing so by 1930.
In 1930, TN 58 was removed from Dodson Ave north of Glass St; Harrison Pike (now underwater north of Kings Rd until Booker T Washington State Park); Champion Rd/Harrison Pike; more underwater routing to where it meets up with current TN 58 at Hunter Rd.
In 1931 or 1932, TN 58 was given its first bridge over the Tennessee River below Kingston, leaving behind a private driveway west of the river; Twin Rivers Ferry; abandoned routing east of the river that is now partly underwater plus used the footprint of Tonachio and Betty Brown Trails.
By 1935, TN 58 was removed from Eastville Cir south of today's TN 306.
About 1937, TN 58 south was truncated to TN 2A (now TN 317) northeast of Chattanooga. The old route became part of TN 2A Today this is 4th St to west edge of Citizens Cemetery, then north to 3rd St (this L connection is no longer a road) east, Dodson Ave north, Glass St northeast
In 1951, TN 58 was re-extended replacing TN 2A to US 27 Market St in Chattanooga, then followed US 11-41-64-72 on 11th and Broad, then kept south as new state highway on St. Elmo Ave and Ochs Hwy to the Georgia line.
Between 1957-59, TN 58 was rerouted in Chattanooga to stay on Market south until it became Alton Park, the west on 40th to Tennessee Ave north to Ochs Hwy southwest.
No earlier than 1962, TN 58 north was extended east with US 70 out of Kingston about 4 miles, then north as new state highway to TN 95 Oak Ridge.
About 1969, TN 58 was removed from US 70 and run up to I-40 east as it runs today. The piece between US 70 and I-40 east of Kingston became TN 58A (now TN 326).
Between 1975-78, TN 58 was rerouted in Chattanooga to follow TN 153 north then Amnicola Hwy west which becomes Riverside Pkwy. It is unclear if TN 58 still used Market from downtown for a time, but by 1983 TN 58 used Riverside Pkwy all the way around until it becomes 20th St which TN 58 used to get back to Market. The old routing became part of TN 17. 3rd/4th Sts west of TN 17 were removed from the state highway system.
About 1981, TN 58 was removed from Walnut Grove Rd by Meadow Lake Airport; abandoned routing plus McMurray Rd
In 2002 or 2003, TN 58 was removed from 20th/Riverside Pkwy/Amnicola Hwy and TN 153. Only Amnicola Hwy between Dupont Pkwy and TN 153 remained in the state highway system (as TN 319), though some of 20th is now part of US 11-64. This created a gap in TN 58 which has no simple way to get between the segments.

Posting: Posted as secondary routing south of Chattanooga; posted as primary routing everywhere else.
The overlay with I-40 is fully posted from TN 58's point of view. To be fair there are no I-40 reassurance shields between the TN 58 exits either.
Secret US Route Overlay: None
Comment: TN 58 can be a viable alternative to either I-75 or US 27
The Chattanooga gap in TN 58 makes no sense. They should really renumber the Lookout Mountain segment as something else.
