Lahaina bypass offers convenience, great views

If you are going north from south, central or Upcountry Maui and you do not need to go into Lahaina town itself, you can enter the bypass from Hokiokio Street, which is opposite Puamana. The bypass will allow drivers to bypass all five streets and all five traffic lights in Lahaina and exits onto Keawe Street, facing Longs Drugs and the Lahaina Cannery Mall.

Those who are commuting to work in West Maui every day should take the bypass, as it will make the trip easier, faster and less frustrating.

Drivers who are in West Maui and are going south to the other side can enter the bypass off the highway by taking a left on Keawe Street at the Lahaina Gateway Shopping Center. They will exit at Hokiokio and will have bypassed all of Lahaina town.

Enjoy the ride. The views from the bypass are spectacular.
