HONOLULU - On Wednesday, a second access route to the Mehana Subdivision in Kapolei will officially open. The access route connects the subdivision to and from Kapolei Parkway via Kama’aha Avenue.

Residents can expect less traffic congestion in the area with the alternate route, especially during pick-up and drop-off periods at Ho‘okele Elementary on Kunehi Street. 

“With the opening of the State’s newest school, Ho‘okele Elementary, located in the Mehana Subdivision, this second access road is well-timed and welcomed by the community,” said Representative Sharon Har (Kapolei, Makakilo).

While additional repairs may be needed to the roadway, any additional road closures will happen outside of school rush hour traffic.
