Mamalahoa Bypass now open 24-7

By Associated Press

Mayor Billy Kenoi has announced that the Mamalahoa Highway Bypass is now open to two-way traffic 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The bypass, located between the shoreline and Mamalahoa Highway begins at the southern edge of Keauhou and runs approximately three miles to the bottom of Haleki`i Street in Kealakekua’s Kona Scenic subdivision. It first opened as a one-way limited hours reliever road in 2009 under a temporary agreement with Hokulia developer 1250 Oceanside Partners. The developer in December completed conveyance of all remaining rights, title and interest to the County, which made a number of improvements including shoulder
paving, installing guardrails and removing a speed hump. Future plans include extending the Mamalahoa Highway Bypass from the intersection with Haleki'i Street to the junction of Mamalahoa Highway and Napo'opo'o Road.
