KĪHEI – The Hawaiʻi State Department of Education (HIDOE) is inviting interested parents and community members to an open house to share the results of the pedestrian crossing study for Kūlanihāko‘i High School on Thursday, Sept. 22, 2022, at the Lokelani Intermediate School cafeteria from 4-7 p.m.
The consultant study team will be available to answer questions and collect public feedback. Evaluations of the alternative Pi‘ilani Highway overpass and underpass crossing proposals will be available, including estimated construction and permitting schedules, project costs and student travel distances. Attendees will be able to provide input on their crossing preferences.
As part of its commitment to pedestrian safety, the HIDOE contracted a local third-party consultant to analyze grade-separated crossing options for Pi‘ilani Highway. The goal is to understand the challenges of providing a safe pedestrian route and to propose a data-driven, feasible solution. The study incorporates feedback from a public survey and community listening sessions held in August. Additional public input received at this community open house will also be included in the study. Current information regarding this study can be viewed at bit.ly/KiheiHScrossing.
