Hawai`i Roads - HI 930, former CR 803

HI 930 and former CR 803

The route is an alternative back from Waialua and the North Shore to Wahiawa, Mililani, and ultimately Honolulu. If the county no longer maintains 803, I don't know who does, because there are no towns that way and it's still in good shape.

Two parts of the same photo, heading west out of Haleiwa and looking at the end of the Wai`anae Range. O`ahu County can do anything it wants inside its route shields, but generally the counties try to mimic the state as closely as possible, and the number isn't doing that.

To the left, Kaukonahua Road turns off of 930, leading back to civilization. Despite the shields, it hasn't been CR 803 for awhile - at least, so I've read. To the right, Farrington Highway, a long dead-end to Dillingham Airfield. Again, despite the "TO" shield, it's still HI 930 - but doesn't that whole assembly look like a county job? Farrington Highway picks back up on the Leeward Coast, becoming HI 93 - and look at that numbering coincidence! Obviously, the two highways were once connected around Ka`ena Point, but that part of the road was never paved. The trail from this end still leads out to the point, but there's no hope of continuing to Makaha because no one is maintaining it, and pieces have fallen into the ocean. Most of those pieces have been bypassed by adventurous ATV's and/or 4x4's, but either there's one larger piece that hasn't, or there are continually pieces falling out that take time to bypass. Either way, probably not worth going out there and dying.

Former 803 SB to another former county route, 801. CR 801 continues Kaukonahua Rd. left to Wahiawa. CR 803 continues straight on Wilikina Dr. as a bypass of that town. The Botts' dots applied in wretched excess scream county maintenance, although the missing ones demonstrate that it's been awhile, and the new green sign screams hollers local maintenance.
