Donald Smith, the State of Hawaii Department of Transportation’s Hawaii Island district engineer, says that road widening funds for Highway 130 “won’t be enough to add lanes all the way from Hawaiian Paradise Park to Pahoa.”
Meanwhile, Smith adds that his crews plan “to restripe the highway from Keaau to Shower Drive to make four lanes available around the clock.” Smith says he is discussing plans to lower the speed limit on the highway to reduce traffic fatalities.
