The County of Maui Department of Public Works will hold a virtual community meeting via Zoom from 9 to 11 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 22, to discuss shoreline erosion and mitigation alternatives along Lower Honoapiilani Road at Kaopala Bay in Kahana, between the intersections of Puamana Place and Hui Road “E.”
Registration is required to attend: https://tinyurl.com/Kaopala2. Once registered, participants will be sent an email containing the meeting link through the Zoom platform.
Accelerated coastal erosion near Kaopala Bay is raising concern over the structural integrity of the roadway. This corridor serves as a major urban collector road for residential access, bus service, pedestrians, cyclists, beach access and numerous utilities. The road provides immediate coastal access for emergency response and medical services. DPW and its consultants have developed potential alternatives to continue a route that can maintain roadway services.
The department encourages the community to attend to review the project information and offer comments on mitigation alternatives. Feedback received from this meeting will be considered in further project planning and implementation.
For anyone unable to attend, the meeting will be recorded and posted to the County website with information on how to provide comments.
If special accommodations are requested, contact Kristi Ono of the Department of Public Works, Engineering Division office, at (808) 270-7745.
