A quick hypertext drive: I have never been to the state of Hawaii at all, much less driven any of Interstate H-3. Oscar Voss’ Hawaii Highways website has this page with better information about H-3, as well as many pictures of the highway.

Like most Interstates in Hawaii, Interstate H-3 was built primarily with military needs in mind — in this case, to serve the Marine Corps base at Kaneohe Bay. However, as the pictures on Oscar Voss’ aforementioned website show, H-3 is probably the most scenic drive anywhere on the Interstate system. Two twin-tube tunnels and several long, elevated viaducts carry H-3 through a number of mountain ranges and valleys in the east-central part of the island of Oahu. The highway ends just a few yards west of the main gate to Kaneohe Marine Corps Base.
