On Sunday the controversial southern terminus Lahaina bypass was blessed. The $48.7 million project runs 2.6 miles. The project will redirect Lahaina bound traffic. This section is scheduled to open on April 23rd.
Not everyone is please with the new traffic redirection. Director Jade Butay has vowed his commitment that any issues that arise from the new bypass will be addressed. The hope for all involved with the project is that the new section will run smoothly once people get used to it.
