Tackling long-standing road issues in the Liliha-Kamehameha Heights continues in 2016, as plans are finalized for the Rehabilitation of Local Streets, Phase 12B Project. The Phase 12B Project will cover streets ending at the Phase 12A Project, which included streets in Kalihi Valley and Alewa Heights. This project will cover streets between Prospect Street to Lanakila Avenue-Alewa Drive-Waolani, and areas mauka of the H-1 Freeway; and a copy of the street listing is enclosed for your information and review. The project will also continue into the Punchbowl area. The Phase 12B Projects scheduled to be bid immediately after the conclusion of the Phase 12A Project in March 2016.
Among those streets that have received numerous complaints are The Street and Panui Street. Both streets are private roads that are eligible for City repaving services (because they service more than 6 properties along the street), which have deep potholes and poor road conditions. My staff has contacted the Department of Facility Maintenance’s Pothole Hotline (768-7777) to obtain temporary relief by quick patches for the potholes on these streets; my staff and I will continue to update board members and residents on the status of this long-awaited project!
