Kea‘au - Pāhoa Road Improvements Project
  This project is intended to address degrading traffic conditions along this highway corridor between Kea‘au and Pāhoa.
  Currently, the Kea‘au-Pāhoa Road is heavily congested during peak traffic hours. The Hawai‘i Long-Range Land Transportation Plan (TranPlan), completed in May 1998, identified the potential for significant traffic increases due to availability of approximately 56,000 residential lots in the Puna region. The TranPlan recommended increasing the capacity of Kea‘au-Pāhoa Road by adding two lanes between Kea‘au and Pāhoa (from the end of the Kea'au Bypass to the beginning of the Pāhoa Bypass).
The planning portion of this project will include an alternatives analysis and an extensive public involvement program which involves a Context Sensitive Solutions approach. A Draft Environmental Assessment (FEA) was made available in May 2010 and the Final EA/Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) was published on May 23, 2011. Design and construction will follow the planning process.
