The Ghostbuster:
Is anyone aware of the once-proposed Interstate H-4? It was proposed in the 1960s as a bypass of existing Interstate H-1 in Honolulu. It would have started at H-1's Exit 18 and concluded at Exit 25. Although it was never built, there are still freeway-to-freeway ramps at both terminuses, and it likely would have relieved congestion on H-1 (the intention for its construction). Unsurprisingly, intense local opposition prevented its construction. More info here: http://www.hawaiihighways.com/proposed-Interstate-H4-report.pdf.

RoadwayWiz and I did our own take regarding H-4.  Essentially much of Hawaii Route 92 was built atop what would have been the H-4 corridor:

I believe kurumi once suggested that an Interstate H-4 should be constructed on Maui: http://kurumi.com/roads/3di/ix01.html#201hi.

Where though?  Kihei is blowing up in terms of development but there isn’t much there that would require a freeway per se along HI 31.  Perhaps Lahaina to Kahului via HI 3000, HI 30, HI 380 and HI 3800?
