DOT bypass extension is stroke of genius

Mahalo to the state Department of Transportation and Gov. David Ige. The newly opened bypass highway south and the rerouting of northbound traffic directly onto the bypass was a stroke of genius. It has reduced congestion and drive times immensely.

More refinements are in the works to make it even better. Views from the highway to the ocean and islands of Lanai and Molokai are spectacular.

Mahalo also to Gov. Ige for supporting the extension of the bypass north to and beyond Kaanapali. This will make the bypass truly valuable.
