Coastal erosion can be seen along Lower Honoapiilani Road at Kaopala Bay in Kahana, between the intersections of Puamana Place and Hui Road "E."

Maui County officials are worried about the shore along Lower Honoapiʻilani Road near Kaʻopala Bay in Kahana, between the intersections of Puamana Place and Hui Road E.

Accelerated erosion is raising concern over the structural integrity of the road. It is a major thoroughfare for residents, bus service, pedestrians and numerous utilities. The County says it also provides immediate coastal access for emergency response and medical services.

DPW and its consultants have developed potential alternative routes to maintain service to the community.

The department will be presenting its alternatives, and encouraging the community to attend and offer feedback.

Residents must register to attend the meeting. After registering, an email with the meeting's link will be sent.
