"Ask the Mayor": Cracks on Mokulele Highway Cause for Repairs

Posted to Mayor's Activities by Lois Whitney

Dear Mayor Arakawa:

Q: Why are they re-paving Mokulele Highway when it seemed to be in good driving condition before?  There seems to be many other Maui roads that need resurfacing more than this one.

A:  This is a State Dept. of Transportation (DOT) project that involves resurfacing Mokulele Highway from Kuihelani Highway to the vicinity of the Maui Humane Society near Mehameha Loop, to extend the life of the existing pavement.  State DOT informed me that longitudinal cracking in the pavement showed that preventive maintenance was needed. Long cracks can lead to serious defects as water seepage and continual vehicle traffic break the asphalt into small chunks over large slab-sized sections of pavement, rather than in smaller-diameter potholes. To best protect the pavement from weathering, periodic resurfacing of the entire roadway is necessary. Construction is anticipated to be completed in June.
