Motorists are asked to drive with caution in the Dairy Road area of Kahului as they adjust to construction done in conjunction with the Airport Access Road Project.

Crews worked earlier this week to construct an elevated curve in the road between Puʻunēnē Avenue and Pakaula Street.

State highway personnel officially broke ground on Phase 1 of the Kahului Airport Access Road project in November of 2013.

The project is designed as a traffic mitigation measure to meet continuing growth in use and demand at the Kahului Airport, enhance traffic circulation, and alleviate congestion.

According to the Environmental Assessment for the project published in March 2012, Phase I of construction for the Kahului Airport Access Road, calls for a four-lane, 4,700-foot stretch of road between Puʻunēnē Avenue and the Hāna Highway.
