Part 1; the history of Hawaii Route 8930
The history of Hawaii Route 8930 is brief given it is a modern facility. Hawaii Route 8930 and what was known as "North-South Road" were built to facilitate the developing areas of Kapolei on western O'ahu. According to hawaiihighways.com the first stage of Hawaii Route 8930 was completed from Kapolei Parkway north to Farrington Highway as a four-lane highway during November 2007. The initial segment of Hawaii Route 8930 did not open until the second segment connecting from Farrington Highway north to Interstate H-1/Queen Liliuokalani Freeway was completed during October 2009. Finishing work on Hawaii Route 8930 was completed during February 2010 and the highway was renamed Kualakai Parkway.
