The Next Bike Path for Kihei: Waipuilani- WHEN?
UPDATE (MAR 22, 2013) As the County Council awaits receiving the budget from the mayor on Monday (3/25/13), KCA is awaiting confirmation that the money is there for this long expected bicycle path
(APR 24, 2012) As the community enjoys the just completed bike path makai of Liloa between Lipoa Street and Waipuilani Road, Public Works Director David Goode has announced his department is set to begin construction of the Waipulani bike path running North from Waipuilani Park fronting the ocean to Kulanihakoi Rd. The funding totaling $1.6 M is in the admistration’s budget set to take effect July 1, 2012, so long as the County council approves, and actual construction would take place in 2014. KCA requests a more prompt beginning, rather than an 18 month delay.
At times there is public confusion about this picturesque oceanfront park caused by proximity to Maui Sunset Condo Resort, but the park and its tennis courts and tree studded wide grass areas running to the sand are indeed public access, as will be the bikeway once constructed.
