The controversial H-3 Freeway located on the island of Oahu is 16.1 miles long and connects Kaneohe Marine Corps Base on the windward side of Oahu with the Halawa Interchange near the Aloha Stadium. It winds it way from Halawa through Halawa Valley, bores through the Koolau Mountains via a pair of mile-long tunnels, skirts the cliffs of the Koolaus, then lowers itself toward Kailua and the MCB Kaneohe.
Completed in 1997, the $1.3 billion H-3 Freeway stands as the largest and most controversial public works project in Hawai'i history. It took 34 years from public hearings to completion in 1997.
