STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1852
RE: H.C.R. No. 31
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirty-Second State Legislature
Regular Session of 2023
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Transportation, to which was referred H.C.R. No. 31 entitled:
"HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION URGING THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION TO CONSTRUCT AN ALL-WAY CROSSWALK ALONG THE CROSS-STREETS OF KAHUALII STREET, WAIPIO POINT ACCESS ROAD, AND FARRINGTON HIGHWAY,"
begs leave to report as follows:
Your Committee finds that pedestrian safety is an important issue for all communities in Hawaii and the crosswalk adjacent to Waipahu High School is of particular concern because of the many students who walk to and from school. The area surrounding Waipahu High School is heavily congested with pedestrians who are overflowing the pedestrian island in the morning when school begins and, in the afternoon, when school ends. Your Committee further finds that the construction of an all-way crosswalk or pedestrian scramble is an effective method of reducing the chance of vehicles and pedestrians colliding.
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. 31 and recommends its adoption.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Transportation,
CHRIS TODD, Chair
