Ask The Mayor: When Will Waiehu Drainage Work be Completed?
Maui County Mayor Michael Victorino answers some of the most-asked questions submitted to his staff.
Q: How much longer will the drainage work in Waiehu Heights be going on? Analio Street has become an obstacle course of paved-over construction and sink holes, bulldozers and road crews. Please finish this project and repave the roads in our neighborhood.
A: I am told by our county Public Works Department that the contractor handling this project is working hard to fix this section of roadway, but it may take a few more months.
Storm drain lines were more than 20 feet below Analio Street, which made it very problematic for the contractor to safely access and replace them. Crews are working to put in concrete lining in the existing 54- and 60-inch pipes.
Then, they will need to complete the resurfacing of the roadways within the scope of the project. As you have already seen, this project has presented many obstacles to workers, and we will continue to monitor the project until it is completed.
The public is encouraged to call the Public Works Department’s Engineering Division at 270-7745 for any issues related to access, maintenance of trenches or safety concerns regarding this project. Mahalo for your question and concerns.
