Public Informational Meeting Scheduled for the Saddle Road Extension Project

The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT), Highways Division, invites the community to an informational meeting for the extension of the Western terminus of Daniel K. Inouye Highway (Route 200), formerly known as Saddle Road, to connect with the intersection of Queen Kaahumanu Highway (Route 19) and Waikoloa Beach Drive.

The meeting is scheduled at the following time and location:

Wednesday, May 17, 2017
6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Waikoloa Village Elementary and Middle School
68-1730 Hooko Street
Waikoloa Village, HI 96738

The Federal Highways Administration Central Federal Lands Highway Division (FHWA-CFLHD) and HDOT are collaborating for a solution to extend D.K.I Highway in anticipation of the expected traffic growth in this area. Project information, display boards and proposed options of the extension will be presented at 6:30 p.m., following with a short presentation at 7 p.m. The public is encouraged to ask questions and share their input with the staff available to determine the best solution for the community.

Purposes of the project include improving safety, providing a modern State Highway link connecting motorists traveling between Hilo and coastal South Kohala/Kona on the Daniel K. Inouye Highway and improving general efficiency and operational level of traffic movement designed to save time.
