Between Honolulu and Pearl City, the road is a busy urban arterial with 2×3 lanes and traffic lights, parallel to the H1. The road then loops around the interchange between the H1 and H2 around Pearl City and heads north into the interior. This section parallels Interstate H2 and is largely a 2×2 divided highway. The road then forms the bypass of Wahiawa, then runs a single lane through the valley to the North Shore. At Haleiwa the road becomes SR-83.

The Kamehameha Highway is the historic route from Honolulu to the North Shore. The area surrounding the road has been heavily urbanized since the 1940s, with Interstates H1 and H2 being constructed parallel to it between Honolulu and Wahiawa. Despite this, the SR-99 is still a busy road here due to the high amount of local traffic. The road was named after the Kamehameha royal family between 1795 and 1872. The connecting SR-83 is also part of the Kamehameha Highway.

The Republic of Hawaii was a country that existed between 1894 and 1898. It included the US state of Hawaii. The Republic of Hawaii came into existence when the Kingdom of Hawaii abolished the monarchy. For decades American businessmen were active in the islands. They had a lot of power in the country’s parliament. The king(ess) of Hawaii and the locals had little to say. Queen Liliuokalani wanted a new constitution that would give every Hawaiian the right to vote and give the king more power. However, in 1893 her government was overthrown and she was imprisoned. As a result, the parliament of Hawaii gained power and abolished the monarchy. Liliuokalani was forced to abdicate in 1895 and was released for a year. American businessmen wanted Hawaii to become a US territory, but President Grover Cleveland refused to do so. Cleveland was in fact against imperialism. This established the Republic of Hawaii; a one-party state run by American businessmen. Sanford Dole, who had his own fruit company, became president of the republic. Hawaii eventually became part of the United States in 1898, when William McKinley conquered the area. Hawaii officially became a territory of the United States in 1900, and it was finally admitted as the country’s 50th state in 1959.
