Route description

SR 8 begins in Hamilton County concurrent to US 41 / US 76/SR 3 (hidden) at the Georgia border in East Ridge. As Ringgold Road, they head east and have an interchange with I-75 and going through downtown before entering the Bachman Tubes and entering Chattanooga, where it becomes East Main Street and having an interchange with I-24. There, SR 8 leaves US 41 at the western national terminus of US 76 and heads north, concurrent with US 11/US 64/US 72/SR 2. It then leaves the four routes and goes through downtown as Market Street and has another intersection with SR 2 and the short SR 316 and then a junction with SR 389 before crossing the Tennessee River and becoming Cherokee Boulevard. SR 8 then has an interchange with US 27/SR 29, at the national southern terminus of US 127, which it becomes concurrent with, in Red Bank. It then has a junction with SR 27 before winding its way up a mountain and going through Signal Mountain. US 127/SR 8 then go through Fairmount before crossing into Sequatchie County. They then go through Lone Oak before meandering down a mountainside and entering a valley in Center Point, where they intersect SR 283. US 127/SR 8 then enter Dunlap and have an intersection with SR 28, which becomes the unsigned companion route of US 127. They go north through downtown before coming to an interchange with SR 111, where SR 8 separates from US 127/SR 28 and follows that route. SR 111/SR 8 wind their way through a narrow valley before having an intersection with SR 399. SR 8 soon leaves SR 111 and heads eastward to enter Van Buren County. SR 8 shortly runs through a remote area of Van Buren County Before crossing into Warren County. It then runs through some farmland and crosses a creek before junctioning with SR 127 and entering McMinnville. SR 8 then comes to an end at an intersection with SR 56 just west of downtown.
