Department of Transportation Meeting Tonight – Puna Makai Alternate Route (PMAR) to be Discussed

Hawaii Department of Transportation officials along with local politicians will be meeting at the Keaau Elementary School cafeteria tonight at 5:30 to discuss the Puna Makai Alternate Route (PMAR) project and other state road projects that are happening on the island.

Puna Makai Alternate Route

At a meeting last night at Pahoa Community Center, Senator Gilbert Kahele passed out literature with the powerpoint presentation that will be presented and went over it with some of the folks that were in attendance.

One of my main concerns of course is Highway 130 and if we can get the PMAR approved, it will definitely lighten traffic on H-130 and at least give folks an alternate route and an emergency route to go when H130 is blocked off for what ever reason may be.
