Why are there interstate highways in Hawaii?


Now this is a good one, which I wondered while I was there.

For the same reason as there are interstate highways in Puerto Rico. They receive federal funding.

@Intrepid,
That isn't really a satisfactory answer - it tells how the highways were paid for, but not why they were even allowed to be called Interstates in the first place.

@Cycloptichorn,
Because they wouldn't be paid for with federal funds if they were not interstate highways. Inter-states being the highways that the feds pay.

@Intrepid,
Could 'inTRA-state' highway as 'intra' means insider while 'inter' means between.

But, shouldn't someone in the Gov't say, 'It doesn't run between states, so you don't get money for it?'

Just doesn't make logical sense, that's all I'z saying

Not my call. I just know that it is so. I guess since they are states, they have to provide money even though they are separated by water rather than land. A lot of things don't make sense, but they are fact. Smile
