Ask the Mayor: When Will Liloa Drive Open?
Mayor Alan Arakawa answers some of the most-asked questions submitted to his office staff.
Q: Is there a schedule for the opening of Liloa Drive between Alanui Ke Ali‘i and Keonekai Road. Progress seemed to go pretty fast and then all of a sudden it seems like nothing is being done and there is no access to the road. By the way, the roundabout turned out great and the appearance is a great addition to Kīhei.
A: Thank you for the compliment about the roundabout. We are glad it is a popular feature in the Kīhei community.
That particular stretch of road you are taking about is actually privately owned. Work on it is being completed by Towne Development out of O‘ahu as a condition of one of their previous developments. We talked to Towne and they said they should actually be finishing up that road by the first week of December, although it might be even sooner than that. So it won’t be much longer.
