The first section of concrete for the next phase of the Lahaina bypass ends short of Launiupoko’s Kai Hele Ku Street in this photo taken Friday. The 2.7-mile 1B-2 phase extends the bypass from where it currently dead ends at Hokiokio Road above Puamana toward Olowalu. The $38.7 million project is about half done with an estimated completion date of March, the Transportation Department said.
