This morning (6/14/16) we submitted testimony on the request to alert the volunteer Commissioners how much else is involved right here near the intersection of Kaonoulu & SKR. We find that so much is done piecemeal disregarding everything else surrounding a single project, leading to an extreme lack of continuity in Kihei. When you examine the next phase of this bridge replacement/repair and you are looking at the near-by intersection,hopefully with a KCA proposed roundabout- NOT a signal light –the hugely expanding resort within a block, the proposed greenway SKR to the Pi’ilani Hwy along the edge of this gulch, you can insure all the pieces fit before the construction

Now this phase will temporarily reroute SKR mauka, construct a 2ed temporary bridge- we have the first temp in place now-, so the current temp can be deconstructed and a final permanent one installed in place, and the original SKR roadway route back in place. We hope all of this is accomplished before the ocean level does not increase too far.

KCA was only testifier on this item, and the Commissioners gave unanimous approval 7-0. We wish to express mahalo to DPW deputy Director Rowena Dagdag Andaya for her kind words for KCA before we testified.
