KAHULUI – The state Department of Transportation (DOT) has scheduled a public informational meeting to brief the community on the findings contained in the draft environmental assessment (DEA) on the proposed Lahaina Bypass Southern Terminus Relocation Project. The meeting will be held at the following location and time:
Tuesday, June 12, 2012
5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
West Maui Senior Center
788 Pauoa Street
The Lahaina Bypass southern terminus will be relocated 4,800 lineal feet from its current point at Launiupoko to vicinity of the former Olowalu Landfill. The length of the new right-of-way corridor will be approximately 10,300 lineal feet. Due to erosion on along Honoapiilani Highway and a projected increase in traffic congestion, the DEA finds that shifting the terminus further south will aid in alleviating these conditions.=
The comment period for the DEA has been extended to June 22, 2012. Please send comments to the Hawaii Department of Transportation, 869 Punchbowl St., Honolulu, HI 96813, Attention: Darell Young; Munekiyo & Hiraga Inc., 305 High St., Suite 104, Wailuku, HI 96793, Attention: Mark Alexander Roy; and Office of Environmental Quality Control, 235 South Beretania St., Suite 702, Honolulu, HI 96813.
