Fifty-five new wayfinding signs promote health by encouraging walking and exploration of Wailuku Town’s hidden and well‐known treasures.

The Wailuku Community Association in collaboration with the Hawai‘i Public Health Institute and the Maui Redevelopment Agency announced the addition of new pedestrian wayfinding signage to be installed throughout the heart of Wailuku Town.

The wayfinding signage is designed to help visitors and residents walk their town to find arts, cultural, and historical destinations throughout Wailuku. There are 55 signs in total that will be installed giving directional information on locations as well as approximate walking times to each site.

Project coordinators say Wailuku is home to many hidden and well‐known treasures that are all very accessible by walking. Some of the areas featured in the wayfinding signage are parks, gyms, shopping and eating destinations, theaters and museums.

A kick‐off event for the installation of the signs takes place this Friday, Sept. 23, 2016.
