King's Highway 8B was a short Business Loop serving the community of Sheffield. The highway was created in 1959, when the Sheffield Bypass was completed and opened to traffic in June, 1959. This new bypass diverted traffic on Highway 8 around the community. The old alignment of Highway 8 through Sheffield became Highway 8B. The Sheffield Business Loop lasted until April 1, 1970, when it was formally decommissioned.
