Lawmakers Discuss Traffic Solutions for Waianae Coast

From KHON:

Traffic worries along the west side of Oahu are nothing new. State legislators as well as administrators from a number of agencies want to hear from you about how to ease traffic along the busy Leeward corridor.

Officials from the State Department of Transportation, a representative from City Transportation Services, and H.A.R.T. officials answered questions.

The town hall meeting took place from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Nanaikapono Elementary School. It was organized by State Senator Maile Shimabukuro, who says she is all to familiar with the problems that can arise when it comes to west side traffic.

Officials heard suggestions from residents such as opening a full-time bypass road and adding another lane on Farrington Highway.

No final decisions were made, but officials say they are open to all ideas.
