TAX MAP KEYS: TMK:  2-8-007: 999, 2-8-010: 008, 011, 026, 027, 999, 2-6-008:999
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 bicycle and pedestrian safety
along portions of Po’ipu- Road and Pa’anau Road. 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, grade adjustment walls, and
gutters, reconstruction of chain link fencing, installation of new striping, 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 conducted where appropriate. The affected road segments are the
• Po’ipu- Road – Ko – loa Road to Blake Lane (2,450 feet); and
• Pa’anau Road – Po’ipu- Road to the Pa’anau Village Apartment Complex (615 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 relocations and easements.
The proposed Area of Potential Effect (APE) is approximately 3.7 acres, along a total of about
3,065 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 Kaua’i County. Other individuals and organizations with demonstrated legal,
economic or historic preservation interest in the undertaking are asked to contact Kaua’i County
and share information that 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
