The road to Hāna can be a lovely drive, if you have time to make it out to the east side of Maui by car. Taking a flight has been a popular option for many tourists and locals, but there's only one airline that makes the trip. And now that company says it needs financial assistance to continue the route. We get more from HPR Contributing Reporter Colleen Uechi of The Maui News.

On Maui, a piece of history is scheduled to be destroyed….on purpose.

The Hana Pier was built in the early 1920’s.  It was fenced off in 2010 after falling into disrepair with exposed holes and rebar in the deck.  The Department of Transportation reviewed various options for rebuilding the pier but settled on its removal following public feedback.

East Maui's remote Hana Airport can only handle small planes with nine passenger seats or less. But the state Department of Transportation is hoping to change that. Eileen Chao has more from The Maui News.

Governor Abercrombie released $2.1 million earlier this year for capital improvement projects at the east Maui airport. About half was designated for the design of a new aircraft rescue and firefighting station, and the rest for other airfield improvements.
