State Road 8SR 8 currently is a discontinuous route consisting of two sections. One is in the west part of the state, and the other is in the east. The two sections roughly line up with a gap of about 50 miles between them.
The western section goes from US 231 in Hebron to SR 17 in Marshall County. In the early 1940s, this section went as far west as the Illinois line. Up until the 1970s, it went as far as US 41, multiplexing with US 231.
The eastern section goes from Albion east to the Ohio line. In the 1950s, it started at Lake Wawasee and went east to the Ohio line. After that, this western stretch of the east section was orphaned into a third discontiguous section before it also was finally decommissioned in the 1970s.
