Ask the Mayor: Maui Invitational Fan Inquires about Traffic
The mayor answers questions from the public in this series.
By Mayor Alan Arakawa
Q: With the Maui Invitational basketball tournament coming up this week Monday through Wednesday, are there any ongoing traffic projects that might cause additional delays on the road?
Thanks, I’m really looking forward to this event and so are my family members traveling here from the Mainland.
A: Our Public Works Director said the County’s only ongoing project out that way is the Lahaina Watershed project, but it is not expected to impact the intersection of Honoapiʻilani Highway and Hōkiokio Place (near Puamana) during the tournament.
The State Department of Transportation Highways Division said there are no state projects running in the area, because they took into consideration the timing of the tournament and were trying to avoid additional traffic disruptions.
The EA SPORTS Maui Invitational is the premier pre-season basketball tournament that brings many visitors to Maui to cheer on their favorite teams.
Additionally, tournament organizers offer numerous opportunities for our island youth to hone their basketball skills at the many clinics and camps taught by some of the top players and coaches in the sport.
