The Nimitz Highway, also known as Hawaii Route 92, is an east-west highway named after Admiral Chester Nimitz, a celebrated commander of the United States Navy in the Pacific Theater during World War II. The route was constructed during the war in the 1940s in order to serve military facilities and the local airport.
The highway begins at exit 15 off Interstate H-1, and immediately passes the Navy Marine Golf Course. Soon after the highway passes Hickam Air Force Base, and the Honolulu International Airport. The highway serves as the major entrance to the airport for all departures. After that it passes Keehi Lagoon Park, a major tourist attraction, Sand Island, a United States Coast Guard installation and public beach, the Dole Cannery, formerly the hub of Dole operations now a tourist attraction and home to a movie theater, and finally comes to an end at the Aloha Tower, a major tourist attraction and home of the Aloha Tower Marketplace.
