The county’s department of public works removed stop signs on East Waiko Road to ease traffic flow in the area. The stop signs were initially placed to allow through movement for cane haul trucks, but when the area became more developed, the signs created an inconvenience to motorists along East Waiko who had to yield the right of way to baseyard traffic.

The signs were removed near the Rojac baseyard entrance, mauka of the scrap metals site, and makai of Waiale Road.

The County recently completed acquisition of the roadway property from a private party.

The public is also advised to watch for potential cross traffic from water trucks that still use the Wailuku Water Co. filling area on the Maalaea side of the intersection.
