The construction of Bike and Pedestrian Path from Kapaa to Ahihi Point is under way! The project is slated for completion in December!!

KBA has both supported and actively participated in the planning of the trail from the beginning. We have attended many planning meetings, walked the proposed routes, pressed for environmental studies, studied the results of those studies, and listened to the concerns of affected residents and business owners.

KBA believes it will have an overwhelmingly positive affect for Kauai's residents, visitors, and property owners.

This section is the 2nd of a 5 segment plan that will create 18 miles of accessible scenic trail on public lands from Nawiliwili to Anahola.

KBA will continue to be involved in the design and planning of each segment of the path.

PATH UPDATE

On Tuesday March 2nd 2010, KBA hosted a well attended Traffic meeting to hear the latest construction and planning updates from Dr. Brennon T. Morioka Ph.D., P.E. AT the same meeting the board for 2010 was sworn in.

A slide show was presented which at a later date will be forwarded to all members showing the present and proposed plans and construction stages for the main highway (Kuhio Hwy) through Kapaa. The different plans were also discussed for the alternate routes around Kapaa to ease traffic congestion (see diagram attached). Brennon and thus D.O.T. was commended by the participants for the smooth construction transition that has created the new three lanes over the Wailua bridge and for the speed with which the plan was approved and is being executed. Discussion also focused on the new speed limits on Kuhio highway along with the new Police turnouts along the highway which will be used for speed enforcement activities.


In attendance were the Mayor, Bernard P. Carvalho, Jr.  and Tim Bynum representing the County Council. During the meeting the Mayor announced publicly for the first time that after considering all the alternatives, the Ke Ala Hele Makalae Project, also known as the Kauai Path, will be running along side the Makai or Ocean side of Kuhio Hwy. This is the first official notice of this decision and we commend the Mayor for this choice to keep the Path as close to the Ocean as possible. Please find attached the present map that will show the route of the path. Phase A, and phase A spur, is ready to put out to bid now.  Phase B is in Planning and the other Phases will follow.
