Roundabouts Ruled Out in Initial Hawaii 130 Draft Environmental Assesment

Thanks to the Aaron over at The Kona Blog for emailing me a link to the Highway 130 Draft Environmental Assesment that was prepared and delivered to the State recently.

A quick scan of the 171 page document shows me that they have ruled out roundabouts at this point in time.  I may be missing something.

When I have more time, I will be examining this a bit closer.
