OK 8

Highway History:
OK 8 has had the same route for at least the last 50 years.

Highway Review:
The first major town along OK 8 is Anadarko, where it heads west with U.S. 62 and OK 9 for six-tenths of a mile. After that, the highway heads north with U.S. 281, and the two highways are duplex for 62 miles. During this stretch, the two highways head through Gracemont, Binger, Lookeba, Hinton, Geary, and Greenfield before splitting in southwest Watonga. In Okeene, home of a yearly rattlesnake festival, OK 8 intersects OK 51. Nine miles east of Fairview, OK 8 joins OK 58 and the highways head west. In Fairview, OK 8 heads north with U.S. 60 and six miles later the highway joins U.S. 412. East of Carmen, OK 45 joins OK 8 for a three-mile stretch. U.S. 64 also joins OK 8 for 9 miles. OK 58 is co-signed with U.S. 64 at this point. At the same point where U.S. 64 heads west on its own, OK 8/58 gains OK 11. OK 58 heads off on its own seven miles later, but OK 8 and OK 11 head west together for seven more miles before splitting. OK 8 finally heads north on its own for its final seven miles in Oklahoma. OK 8 then heads into Kansas and becomes KS 8, which itself ends just a few miles later at KS 2/14.
