The Hawaiʻi Department of Transportation will hold a community meeting tonight at 5 p.m at the Keʻanae Congregational Church to discuss their project to improve six of the historic bridges along the Hāna Highway. The bridges, located between Huelo and Hāna town, include Kailua Stream Bridge (Mile Post 5.9), Makanali Stream Bridge (MP 8.2), Puohokamoa Stream Bridge (MP 11.0), Kopiliula Stream Bridge (MP 21.7), Ulaino Stream Bridge (MP 27.9), and Mokulehua Stream Bridge (MP 28.3).

The project aims to make the bridges safer and more functional for drivers. The HDOT has studied all the bridges along this route and identified these six as high priority for improvement.

At the meeting, the HDOT will gather community input on the project, in compliance with the environmental process and consultation standards under the National Environmental Policy Act and the National Historic Preservation Act. Information on the project and the environmental process will be shared at the meeting. The HDOT is encouraging community members to attend and provide input. A copy of the community meeting flyer is available online

The project is currently in the environmental compliance and preliminary engineering phase. Additional information on the project can be found online. Anyone who is unable to attend the meetings can provide input through the project website or may contact the project manager, Thomas Parker, via email at [email protected] or by telephone at (720) 963-3688.

The Keʻanae Congregational Church is located on the Keʻanae Peninsula at 13705 Hāna Hwy, Keʻanae, HI 96708.
