Notice is hereby given that the Hawaii Department of Transportation, (HDOT), in coordination with the Federal Highway
Administration (FHWA), proposes to construct the project titled “Kuhio Highway Resurfacing, Kahiliholo Road to Ka Haku
Road”, in the Hanalei District on the Island of Kauai. This federally funded HDOT project is considered a federal action and
undertaking, as defined by Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) of 1966, as amended (2006).
The proposed project involves highway resurfacing to Kuhio Highway, Route 56, Kahiliholo Road to Ka Haku Road, Mile Post
24.25 to Mile Post 28.12. The proposed project involves improvements to the existing roadway by reconstructing weakened
pavement areas, cold-planing, resurfacing, minor widening of paved shoulder, installing milled rumble strips and pavement
marking, replacing existing traffic signs, and cleaning existing culvert and drainage structures. The scope of work will be
done within the footprint of the existing, previously disturbed State Highways Right-of-Way (ROW). The total area of the
APE is approximately 57.29 acres and includes the length and width of Kuhio Highway ROW that is 3.87 miles long and up
to 295 ft wide and approximately 24 inches below the existing paved surface in reconstruction areas. Signpost sleeves will
be pounded into the existing ground at a depth no greater than 4 ft. Additionally, the APE includes staging areas that would
likely be on previously graded, developed areas, within the ROW or within adjacent driveways. The APE has been previously
disturbed during grading and road construction within the ROW.
Pursuant to Section 106 of the NHPA, Native Hawaiian Organizations and Native Hawaiian descendants with ancestral, lineal
or cultural ties to, cultural and historical property knowledge of and/or concerns for, and cultural or religious attachment to the
proposed project area are requested to contact HDOT. Other individuals and organizations with demonstrated legal, economic or
historic preservation interest in the undertaking are asked to contact HDOT and share information and knowledge on historical and
cultural sites within the proposed APE. We welcome any information within 30 days of this notice.
Interested participants are requested to contact Mr. Eric Fujikawa, Hawaii Department of Transportation, (808) 241-3015,
1720 Haleukana Street, Lihue, Hawaii 96766, Eric.I.Fujikawa@hawaii.gov. Please respond by November 17, 2021.
