Safety Improvements Planned on Honoapiʻilani Hwy/ʻAholo Rd
By Wendy Osher
The Hawaiʻi Department of Transportation will be working this week on the right hand turn at the corner of the Honoapiʻilani Highway and ʻAholo Road, just north of the Puehuehuiki Cemetery in West Maui.
Work will include the removal of the current striping. Crews will restripe the turn with a new design aimed at improved focus on safety, visibility, and efficiency. The work also involves the addition of a new yield sign and more pavement markings.
“Mahalo nui loa to the HDOT for working with me to finally get the right turn off situation at Honoapiʻilani Highway and ʻAholo Road addressed,” said state Representative Angus McKelvey, whose district includes West Maui.
“This is part of our ongoing effort to ensure that the improvements we successfully secure money for function as intended and are as safe and efficient as possible for the community,” he said.
