Kihei is generally considered the center of the South Maui District. Lipoa St. may be the demarcation between North and South Kihei.
So what is happening at the central intersection along S. Kihei Rd. fronting St Teresa Church? This SW corner has a very wide segment of pavement, seemingly wide enough for a sidewalk, a bike path (or at least a bike lane), but for years it has just been totally open and unmarked. A few weeks ago we noted construction activity there and now we see this platform set up to erect a bus shelter in place very soon–a good first step.
