Large semi-trucks carrying the “super loads” will travel from a staging site near Kahului Harbor through South Maui to the Auwahi Wind site starting on Tuesday, September 18.
Highway improvements are being made to accommodate the large trucks that will be transporting super loads of wind turbine components to the wind farm site in August.
Highway improvements are being made to better accommodate the large semi-trucks that are scheduled to transport “superloads” of wind turbine components to the project site in August.
Beginning July 2, Sempra US Gas & Power will implement temporary lane closures along the Pi`ilani Highway in Upcountry Maui near Papaka Road to the Auwahi Wind farm project.
Once complete, the eight wind turbines will generate enough electricity to power 10,000 Maui homes.
One project seeks approval of an amendment to the incidental take of species at the Kaheawa Wind site; another project requests the realignment of a ranch road at the Auwahi Wind Farm project site in Ulupalakua.
Public comment is being accepted on a Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the proposed Auwahi Wind Farm at Ulupalakua Ranch.
