Purpose & Need

The State of Hawaii Department of Transportation Highways Division (HDOT) is proposing to realign Kamehameha Highway in the vicinity of Laniakea Beach. HDOT prepared a Hawaii Revised Statues (HRS) Chapter 343 Environmental Assessment (EA) discussing the project alternatives and disclosing potential impacts.

The primary purpose of the project is pedestrian safety.

The current project generally consists of realigning Kamehameha Highway mauka roughly 80 feet from its current location on the Haleiwa side of Lauhulu Stream Bridge (also historically known as Laniakea Stream Bridge and Kukaiohiki Stream Bridge) for a length of roughly 1,100 feet.
