UPDATE: Yesterday Antone informed me that the opening has been delayed while A&B looks into “liability issues,” but said it’s still on track for “later this month.”
Just spoke to Maui County Communications Director Rod Antone, who informed me that beginning Wed., April 6, the County will license the Paia “mini”-bypass road from A&B and will keep it open 24/7 (currently it’s open 1-6:30pm Mon.-Sat.). Great news for North Shore commuters tired of the crawl (see this week’s Eh Brah! for a humorous account).
More details from the Mayor’s office and public works dept. to come.
