Should gated part of Paakea Road be opened during emergencies?

MAILI, Hawaii -Could a bypass road help ease traffic along the Waianae coast during emergencies? Some lawmakers say it would.
Traffic came to a standstill on Farrington Highway after the motorcycle crashed into a van in front of the Waianae Coast Comprehensive Center Monday afternoon.
Drivers were diverted onto a back road route to get around the scene.
Some lawmakers say another alternate route could have saved drivers even more time.
They're talking about the gated portion of Paakea Road starting from Lualualei Naval Road.
It was open to the public for the first time Monday, but most drivers didn't know it was an option.
"A lot of the community members who just drove by see it and are like, 'Oh my gosh, the road is open.' And I'm like, yeah for the first time ever the road has been open now. We just got to get the community members used to running it in case of a natural disaster we need to know where to go and how to access it," said Rep. Andria Tupola. View full article

Residents Want Answers about Illegal Dumping in Nanakuli

Nanakuli residents want answers.

Folks who live along Mohihi Street say they've been plagued by a foul odor.

They say it's coming from a nearby canal that's being used as an illegal dump site.

"When the water drained out of the stream then they kinda resurfaced. They said there was a toilet, a raft. But then they said it wasn't that. They think there's either sludge or dead animals in there because they said it's never smelt like that before," said Rep. Andria Tupola.

Representative Tupola says she's been in contact with the city and state health department to clean out the canal, and to determine if there are hazardous materials there. View full article
