History

Route 118, when it was first commissioned in 1925, extended northward along modern Routes 35 and 5 into the town of Bethelmarker, meeting Route 26 in town. When Route 35 was commissioned shortly thereafter, Route 118 was co-signed with it and a portion of Route 5 into Bethel. Route 118 was truncated in 1938 to its current terminus in Waterford at Route 35. At this time, Route 118 ended in Norway at the intersection with Route 117. Sometime in the 1980's, Route 118 was co-signed along Route 117 to its current terminus at Route 26, extending the highway two miles.
