STAND. COM. REP. NO. 2177
RE: S.C.R. No. 93
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 S.C.R. No. 93 entitled:
"SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION, IN COORDINATION WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION SERVICES OF THE CITY AND COUNTY OF HONOLULU, TO INSTALL SPEED BUMPS AND OTHER TRAFFIC CALMING STRUCTURES ON ALA AOLANI STREET IN MOANALUA VALLEY AND OTHER SURROUNDING STREETS DEEMED APPROPRIATE TO DETER SPEEDING,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to request the Department of Transportation, in coordination with the Department of Transportation Services of the City and County of Honolulu, to install speed bumps and other traffic calming structures on Ala Aolani Street in Moanalua Valley and other surrounding streets deemed appropriate to deter speeding.
Your Committee finds that Moanalua Valley is a residential area that is home to several thousand residents and also includes a golf course, neighborhood park, hiking trail, and nearby entrance and exit to Interstate H-201. Ala Aolani Street is the main roadway in the area and is utilized and shared by pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers. Recently many people have expressed concerns about speeding on this street. Your Committee therefore finds that the installation of traffic calming methods will help regulate speeding in this area.
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 S.C.R. No. 93 and recommends that it be referred to your Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Transportation,
CHRIS TODD, Chair
