Route description

Southern highway

Classified as a major collector road,[2] the southern K-8 is a continuation of SH-8, linking northern Oklahoma to the town of Kiowa.[3] Approximately halfway between the state line and the northern terminus, the highway crosses a single track originally belonging to the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway, which is now part of BNSF Railway's Kansas Division.[4][5]

Northern highway

The northern K-8, also classified as a major collector road,[6] begins at an intersection with US-36 near Athol, traveling north through rural farmland in northern Smith County. The highway terminates at the Nebraska state line, where the roadway continues as N-10.[7]

History

K-8 was constructed between 1918 and 1932,[8][9] traveling south-north through the middle of the state. By 1940,[10] the highways were truncated to their current segments. US-281 has replaced the former statewide K-8 as the primary link between Oklahoma and Nebraska.[11] The northern section was renumbered as K-11. In 1959, K-11 was transferred back to K-8, and K-8 was on its current route.
