UPDATE    5/24/24 The latest in this ultra long process. G 70, the HDOTs favorite firm ,.is claiming a FONSI ( NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT) ON THE ENVIRONMENT ASSEMENT  of the pedestrian overpass to access the new High School in No Kihei. Is anyone surprised? How many of you expected G -70  to say their proposed pedestrian overpass was going to have dire environmental impacts?

Actually in a way it may have a positive one by reducing the number of  motor  vehicles on the Pi’ilani Hwy and the general vicinity, as everyone will now  have  access  to the campus on foot  or by bicycle.

Public invited to open house and presentation on Kūlanihāko‘i High School overpass

A legally required GSPC ( over or under) will provide alternative

KĪHEI – The Hawaiʻi State Department of Education (HIDOE) is inviting interested community members and parents to an open house and presentation to provide an update on the Kūlanihāko‘i High School pedestrian overpass across Piʻilani Highway at Kūlanihāko‘i Street that will serve the community and the school.

The meeting presentation will review progress made on the pedestrian grade-separated overpass since a September 2022 community open house identifying crossing alternatives. An environmental assessment for the project is underway and the draft is expected to be available by the end of the calendar year.

The open house will be held on Wednesday, October 25 at Kūlanihāko‘i High School cafeteria/multi-purpose room (Building D) from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., with the presentation at 5 p.m. HIDOE and Hawaiʻi State Department of Transportation representatives and project consultants will be available to answer questions and receive public input.  

Please see attached for a map with the meeting location and parking information. After the meeting, presentation slides will be posted to bit.ly/KulanihakoiConstructionProgress.

We hope this event will be more realistic than that ludicrous event a year ago

Was the Open House 9,8,7 or 6,5,4 years too late? DOE waited almost a decade on child safety action.
