STAND. COM. REP. NO.1102-02
RE: H.C.R. No. 116
Honorable Calvin K.Y. Say
Speaker, House of Representatives
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Transportation, to which was referred H.C.R. No. 116 entitled:
"HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION SUPPORTING TRAFFIC IMPROVEMENT AND BEAUTIFICATION AT THE INTERSECTION OF KUAKINI STREET AND LANAKILA AVENUE,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this concurrent resolution is to support traffic and beautification improvements at the intersection of Kuakini Street and Lanakila Avenue.
Several concerned citizens testified in support of this measure.
The heavily used and currently misaligned intersection of Kuakini Street, Lanakila Avenue, and Keola Street in the Liliha-Lanakila neighborhood is clearly a recognized hazard. This roadway is often congested by thousands of vehicles and pedestrians who visit the many facilities and institutions in the area.
Your Committee feels that a proposal to mitigate this hazard by constructing a short extension at Kuakini Street for the purpose of creating a safer, standard four-leg intersection at Kuakini Street and Lanakila Avenue will create a safer environment for both motorists and pedestrians who use this area.
Your Committee has amended this measure by making technical, nonsubstantive amendments for purposes of clarity, conformity, and style.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Transportation that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of H.C.R. No. 116, as amended herein, and recommends that it be referred to the Committee on Finance in the form attached hereto as H.C.R. No. 116, H.D. 1.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Transportation,
JOSEPH M. SOUKI, Chair
