For the past 22 years, the traffic congestion in the Moanalua area has experienced significant traffic challenges. Area legislators have been working with Moanalua residents to resolve these continuous traffic problems. With further development projects in the area, existing traffic conditions will eventually worsen.
The 2015 American Highway Users Alliance’s (AHUA) report “Unclogging America’s Arteries 2015: Prescriptions for Healthier Highways,” noted that the Halawa Interchange is a significantly congested bottleneck in the state, with a queue length of 0.1 miles and an annual total delay of 78,260 hours. The report also noted that the H-3 merge at Ala Kapuna Street is another of Hawaii’s significantly congested bottlenecks, with a queue length of 0.7 miles and an annual total delay of 607,100 hours. The traffic volumes for the Moanalua Freeway west of Kahupaani Street have ranged between 37,775 and 48,625 vehicles per day, and volumes for the Moanalua Freeway at Moanalua Stream Bridge have ranged between 96,155 and 115,345 vehicles per day respectively.
