Governor Releases $4 Million For Mililani Roads

Sen. Donovan Dela Cruz

I was pleased to receive the communication from Gov. Abercrombie that he is releasing $4 million in capital improvement project funds for the resur-facing of Kamehameha Highway from Waihau Street to Ka Uka Boulevard.

This project is another addition to the work that is going to improve the streets of Mililani and Mililani Mauka.

Besides improving road conditions for commuters, any new project, especially of this magnitude, increases employment opportunities, so it benefits us in various ways.

I also want to remind residents of Mililani, especially of the Mauka area, of the upcoming public information meeting. The July 30, 6:30 p.m. meeting at Mililani Mauka Elementary School is being conducted by the state Department of Transportation (DOT).

The discussion will be on DOT’s traffic study of the existing traffic conditions at the H-2 freeway interchange to improve traffic conditions in the area and the alternatives presented at the May meeting.

DOT will also discuss the outcome of the analysis on the potential alternatives studied. Officials are interested in receiving the community’s input and addressing any concerns or questions residents may have.

My office received questions pertaining to the new small park at Lake Wilson, just before entering Wahiawa town. DOT informs us that there is no room to add parking, but parking is available along Wilikina Drive that connects to the end of H-2.

Also, pedestrians will be allowed to walk across Wilson Bridge as “shoulders wide enough to accommodate safe pedestrian traffic will be provided.”
