The State of Hawaii Department of Transportation, Highways Division (HDOT) is proposing to realign Kamehameha Highway in the Vicinity of Laniakea Beach. The primary purpose of the project is pedestrian safety. Previously, HDOT considered other project alternatives designed to protect the highway from erosion and wave inundation during periods of high surf at Laniakea Beach and Chun's Reef. The new project would protect pedestrians and as a secondary benefit, would help protect the highway from erosion.
