Alahou Street Connection     

Mahalo to Reddy Development as the long-awaited connection of Alahou Street to Henry Street nears completion. In-town residences, churches and businesses directly mauka of Kuakini Highway will experience improved traffic circulation once the street opens, and certainly quicker access in and out during emergencies. The newly signalized Henry and Alahou Street intersection, a County improvement project, has allowed for safer pedestrian use in crosswalks - no more darting through traffic. KVBID continues its advocacy for greater connectivity within the District.
