State Route 8 is part of Maine's system of numbered state highways, running from U.S. Route 201 at Memorial Circle in Augusta, to an intersection with U.S. Route 201 in Solon. Route 8 is 51.6 miles (83.0 km) long.

Route 8 goes north from Augusta through the Belgrade Lakes region, running concurrently with Routes 11 and 27 to Belgrade. The road continues northeast from Belgrade to Norridgewock, where it intersects U.S. Route 2. The route joins with U.S. Route 201A and follows the Kennebec River through Madison and Anson to its north end at Solon.

Route 3 was extended in 2013 from its previous terminus at Interstate 95 to end at Route 8 in Augusta, to serve the new Alfond Center for Health and Cancer Center.[1]
