The April 13 editorial dealing with the connector road between the Kuihelani Highway-Puunene Avenue intersection and the airport appeared to come to a logical conclusion - use an overpass to take traffic past Hana Highway.
The last thing the route from East Maui and Upcountry needs is another traffic signal. Driving from Makawao to Kahului involves passing at least 14 signals to get to the hospital and now there is one at Hana Highway-Wakea Avenue. Maybe if the signals were synchronized drivers could proceed at the speed limit and not have to stop along that route, but having to stop at almost all of them causes the highest waste of gasoline, acceleration and idling.
My next question is: How is the traffic at the Dairy Road-Puunene intersection going to be collected and sent toward the airport? I can't picture Kihei traffic, Puunene traffic, Dairy Road traffic and Kuihelani traffic flowing together in an orderly fashion. How about publishing a map of this proposal?
Parting shots: It's political season, so I will remind you voters that if you ask a politician a question, anything else they say instead of yes means no.
A recent quote, "Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured, but not prove they are a citizen." "Click & Clack" on Friday? No "BC" on the 5th? Next thing we'll be getting the Sunday Funnies on Wednesday.
And, Mazie Hirono, what kind of word is "incentivizing"? Tain't in my Webster's.
