Hazardous Waste Collection and Kapiolani Street Extension in the Mayor’s Blog

A couple of notes of interest from Mayor Kenoi’s Blog this week:

A special Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Collection Event will occur between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 8, 2012 at the Wai‘ōhinu Solid Waste Recycling and Transfer Station.  More Here: Hazardous Waste Collection Sep. 8 at Waiʻōhinu.

The Kapi‘olani Street Extension Draft Environmental Assessment (DEA) will be available for public review and comment on August 23, 2012.  The project proposes to extend Hilo’s Kapi‘olani Street 0.5-mile from Mohouli Street to W. Lanikāula Street to improve traffic flow on Kīlauea Avenue, Kino‘ole Street, and the surrounding streets; accommodate bike and pedestrian travel; and provide an alternate emergency evacuation route.  Construction plans include drainage improvements, utility relocation, traffic signals at two intersections, and a concrete bridge across Waiākea Stream.  The DEA assesses impacts and identifies mitigation measures for this project.

On Tuesday, September 11, 2012, the Department of Public Works will conduct a Public Informational meeting to share the findings of the DEA and invite public comments on the project.  More Here:  Draft Environmental Assessment for Kapi‘olani St. Extension available Aug. 23.
