Lahaina Bypass Now helped secure federal funds through the SRTS (Safe Routes to School) grant program, which has been awarded to Princess Nahienaena School for infrastructure improvements.
The state DOT and the County of Maui Public Works Department will work together on short- and mid-term improvements starting the summer of 2011.
The short-term plan is to improve the Kuialua and Lahainaluna Road intersection with new crosswalks, re-striping approach and installing flashers.
The mid-term plan is to develop a traffic management plan for Princess Nahienaena School, explore the feasibility of a traffic light at Kuialua and Lahainaluna Road and, last but not least, explore the feasibility of alternate routes to Princess Nahienaena School.
Lahaina Bypass Now is a community-based organization dedicated to creating a better quality of life for residents and visitors alike.
