HANAMA˜’ULU AHUPUAA, PUNA DISTRICT, ISLAND OF KAUA’I,
FEDERAL-AID PROJECT NUMBER: SRS-1500 (86) WO 106
TAX MAP KEYS: TMK: (4) 3-7-003:06, 09 & 999, 3-7-008:49, 67, & 999, 3-7-011:999
Notice is hereby given that the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and County of Kaua’i,
Department of Public Works (Kaua’i County) propose to improve pedestrian safety along
portions of Hanamã’ulu Road and Akuli Street. This federally funded Kaua’i County 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 improvements include: widening of the existing paved roadway shoulder,
construction of raised concrete sidewalks, curbs, curb ramps, and gutters, installation of
new striping including a median and turn lanes, pavement markings, flashing beacons and
signs. The project may include addition or relocation of pedestrian sidewalks, bike lanes,
turn lanes, and parking areas. Drainage, utility, and roadway safety improvements will be
constructed where appropriate. The affected road segments are the following:
• Hanamã’ulu Road – Akuli Street to Hanamã’ulu Place (950 feet); and
• Akuli Street – Ho’ohana Street to Hanamã’ulu Road (240 feet).
Most work would be conducted within the roadway right-of-way (ROW), but there are four
adjacent properties where grade and/or property adjustments are required to construct the
proposed improvements. The County of Kaua’i will obtain a property adjustment agreement
or easement from affected property owners for project elements extending beyond the ROW.
No displacements of existing uses are anticipated by these agreements.
The proposed Area of Potential Effect (APE) is approximately 1.6 acres, along a total of
about 1190 feet of roadway. Only a portion of the APE extends below the ground surface,
with depths of up to approximately 10 inches in areas of new pavement shoulder, sidewalk,
curb and gutter, or pedestrian path, and up to approximately 36 inches where new sign and
flashing beacon posts will be installed.
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 Kauai County. Other individuals and organizations with
demonstrated legal, economic or historic preservation interest in the undertaking are asked
to contact Kauai County and share information you may have on historical and cultural sites
within the proposed APE. We welcome any information within 30 days of notice.
Interested participants are requested to contact Ms. Christie Bagley, DPW Project Manager
