Wordless Wednesday – Pahoa’s New Roundabout

Tonight was the informational meeting about the Pahoa Roundabout that will be installed beginning the Summer of 2013 at a cost of $5 million dollars.

Pahoa Round-a-bout

Construction will last approximately one year and Highway 130 will be detoured through Pahoa Town during this time.

Highway 130 will be closed from the Entrance of Malama Market to Kahakai Blvd.  All Traffic will be routed through Pahoa during the construction time slated to happen from Summer 2013 to Summer 2014.

This is who you get to blame for the pending mess!

    There are bigger problems with this intersection that are not being addressed at all. All users of this area need to be accomodated and a much bigger traffic circle is needed to accomplish this staggering feat. All cars within a thousand feet of the circle have to be counted and served. Each of the shopping areas ultimately need highway access because most customers don’t live within Pahoa Village. This is a regional shopping area that has expanded far beyond what was originally approved.

    The planning process failed and now we need to pay to fix it once and for all, unless we want to continue paying with lives, repeated inadequate engineering fixes and time. Some at the State of Hawaii DOT would use the repeated fixes solution to keep job security and to reward contractors with repeated work orders that would go on forever. I would guess that others in the DOT really want to make a safe long lasting fix of the whole intersection and surrounding shopping centers and businesses that need to utilize a bigger traffic circle serving all traffic in and out of their parking lots, exits and entrances to Pahoa , Kahakai and both ends of Pahoa but lack the funding.
