In response to 143114: Traffic Issues, posted by Joyce L on Saturday, 23 February 2019, at 9:25 a.m.

The state and county had plans to widen Queen Kaahumanu Highway Extension/Kuakini Highway from Henry Street to Kamehameha III Road, but those plans were scrapped when the HDOT's capacity program was discontinued in favor of safety/system preservation. There is a bill in the legislature seeking funds to construct this highway widening this year, but the WAM committee hasn't scheduled hearings for it (SB1517)

As far as the county's plans, which was Alii Parkway, it was scrapped due to archaeological issues in the right of way. The county has tried to construct this highway since the 1960s, but has constantly ran into this latter issue.
