Travel directions

At Haleiwa, SR-99 from Wahiawa merges into SR-83, which then runs northeast along the coast. Here are many popular surf spots, including Waimea Bay and the world famous ‘Pipeline’. The road rounds the northern tip of Oahu and then heads southeast along the coast. This part of the coast is largely rugged, including the Sacred Falls and Ahupua’a O Kahana State Park. There are only a few small towns on the route here, and there are no side roads to the west due to the Ko’olau Range. One then reaches the town of Kaneohe, where the road is a 2×2 urban arterial with traffic lights. It connects to Interstate H3, after which the road ends at an intersection with Pali Highway ( SR-61 ).

History

State Route 83 is the longest section of the Kamehameha Highway, which curves across Oahu from Honolulu to Kaneohe, via the North Shore. The area surrounding SR-83 is not as highly developed as the south side of Oahu, with less large-scale resorts and much undeveloped land. Nevertheless, there is tourism here, especially surf tourism. The east side of the route leads through one of the wettest areas in the world. The road was named after the Kamehameha royal family between 1795 and 1872.

On August 21, 2017, a reversible lane opened on State Route 83 between Kahalu’u and Kanohe.

State Route 92, more commonly known as the Nimitz Highway, is a state route in the U.S. state of Hawaii, located on Oahu. The road is located entirely in Honolulu and is 15 kilometers long.

Travel directions

The road begins in Waikiki, Hawaii’s main tourist center. This part of the road is called Ala Moana Boulevard and crosses the Ala Wai Canal with a short bridge. The road then runs past the Royal Hawaiian Center, a large shopping mall. The road then leads past Honolulu’s business center and is called the Nimitz Highway from here. This part counts up to 2×4 lanes. The road then heads through the more industrial west of Honolulu and ends at the immense interchange with Interstate H1.

History

The Ala Moana Boulevard and the Nimitz Highway have historically been major roads in Honolulu. Waikiki began to develop as a large-scale tourist resort from the 1950s, with the rise of the long-haul airplane. The environment here has been greatly transformed with expensive hotel towers. In the 1960s, there were plans to extend Ala Moana Boulevard from Waikiki to Interstate H1, but this never materialized.

State Route 93, also known as the Farrington Highway, is a state route in the U.S. state of Hawaii, located on the island of Oahu. The road runs from Ko Olina to near Kaena Point and is 32 kilometers long.

Travel directions

State Route 93 is a continuation of Interstate H1 from the resorts at Ko Olina and runs along the west coast of Oahu. The road is a dead end, but still opens up a number of places. The road runs along the base of Mount Ka’ala, the tallest mountain on Oahu. The road eventually ends at a parking lot at Kaena Point, about 2.5 miles before the actual western cape of Oahu.

History

Kaena Point is Oahu’s western cape, but only dirt roads round out the cape. Maps sometimes suggest the road continues as far as Haleiwa, but tourists can’t take a full tour of Oahu. As a result, the road does not have much through importance, but does open up some major resorts, especially close to the starting point around Ko Olina.
