Route 63 is a state highway on the island of Oʻahu in Honolulu County, Hawaiʻi, United States, that is one of three main highways passing through the Koʻolau mountain.

Route description[edit]

The highway passes through the Wilson Tunnel, and takes commuters from the towns of Kāneʻohe and Kailua on the windward (northeast) side of the island, through Kalihi Valley into Honolulu on the leeward (south) side of the island.

Likelike Highway (pronounced LEE-kay-LEE-kay) is named after Hawaiian Princess Miriam Likelike, sister of King David Kalākaua.
