Project Information
The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) Highways Division is conducting a study to determine the long term vision and management for Farrington Highway Corridor between Nanakuli and Makaha. The study will analyze and identify short term (6 months – 2 years) and long term (2 to 20 or more years) multimodal solutions that address safety, traffic congestion, and resilience, including options for secondary access to Westside communities. The DOT has assembled a project team led by SSFM International to work closely with residents and community organizations in coming up with solutions for the area.

Many communities depend on the highway as a lifeline to travel both within and outside the Waianae Coast. The project will involve collaboration with schools, community organizations, residents, and others who live, work, and play on the Westside.

The project team will work with the community to ensure project recommendations reflect and uphold community priorities and address the needs of all modes and users. Community engagement will include neighborhood board presentations, individual stakeholder meetings, community meetings, and coordination with local schools.
