Left - Beginning of Former Hwy 8B & Hwy 52B in Rockton. The short Rockton Business Route was established after that community was bypassed by a new highway in the late 1950s. The Rockton Business Route was decommissioned in 1970 and is now just known as Old Hwy 8.

Right - Facing west along Former Hwy 8B & Hwy 52B in Rockton. Until the Rockton Bypass opened in 1959, all through traffic between Galt and Hamilton travelled along Rockton's main street.

Above - Western terminus of Former Hwy 8B & Hwy 52B in Rockton. The Rockton Bypass at left was completed in 1959, bypassing a short section of Old Hwy 8. The route of Hwy 8B & Hwy 52B through Rockton was then realigned so that it intersected the Rockton Bypass at a right angle.
