Notice is hereby given that the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) propose to implement widening and utility improvements to Kuhio Highway along an approximately 1.75-miles section of highway in the Lihue and Kawaihau districts on the island of Kauai. The proposed project includes widening approximately 0.8 miles on the southbound (mauka) side of Kuhio Highway from three to four lanes between Kuamoo Road and Temporary Bypass Road. Additionally, the existing right-turn storage lane along Kuamoo Road will be extended. In addition, the HDOT plans to underground various existing overhead utility lines from South Leho Drive to Temporary Bypass Road.

The FHWA and HDOT will conduct a consultation meeting pursuant to Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 (Amended 2006). Native Hawaiian Organizations and Native Hawaiian descendants with lineal or cultural ties to, cultural knowledge or concerns for, and cultural or religious attachment to the historic resources of Wailuanuiahoano as well as the ahupuaa of Wailua and South Olohena are invited to attend. The agenda will be to go over the results of the historic properties consultation as well as the results of the archaeological investigation that was conducted. In addition, there will be consultation with Native Hawaiian Organizations as a group to assess whether the project will have an adverse effect on the historic and cultural properties identified.
