OahuMPO ORTP 2040 Listening Sessions: Waianae HS 2/28, 7-8:30pm

The OahuMPO will be holding a series of public listening sessions so that you can tell us exactly what to do with traffic congestion, and any other transportation headache you have.  No really.  We want to hear from you – all of your complaints and your ideas for fixing them.  We may be transportation planners, but let’s be honest, we can’t drive every road, or ride every bus, or walk every sidewalk, or cruise every bike path, so we need your help to identify existing transportation problems.

Input can be sent to http://www.oahumpo.org/ until April 14th.

Please see the press release below to find a session near your home.  If you have any questions, feel free to call or email me.

  1. Hi Maile,   Thanks for the heads up notice.  I also saw it in this weeks Mid Week. I never write my feelings but I couldn’t resist this one. First of all the order in which the hearings are set makes me furious.  To have the people on the Leeward side be heard last.  Secondly, all of Oahu know that entering Farrington Hwy is one way in and one way out.  You have no choice.  Most recently a homeless pedestrian was killed by Kahe Power plant (Friday, 1/4/13) which backed up traffic to Hakimo road at 5:50am.  By 6:30am I never made it to Nanakuli Mcdonalds so turned back to Maiili point (Kaukama road) by that time traffic was backed up to St. Johns road.  I dropped my wife off earlier to catch the bus into town and she passed Nanakuli Mcdonalds at 7:10am. Many drivers stuck in traffic turned around and went home.  Assuming they went to work later or never went to work for the day.  Many other obstructions on Farrington Hwy makes it ALMOST impossible to go to work or go home because of water main breakage, 5-6 telephone poles being knocked down due to high winds, hostage situation, fires,  numerous automobile accidents (which never seem to be on the right side but in the middle lanes or intersections). I agree you don’t have to drive Farrington Hwy to know this you can read about it in the papers or as the news media would say “just be patient those of you driving on the Leeward side”.  Patience and one road in and out is all we have left. I’ve lived here on the leeward coast for 19 years and hear of talks of improving the roads and alternate routes but it never seems to get any closer to reality.

    Thank you,
