  Lydgate Park-Kapa‘a Bike/Pedestrian Path Minimize

As stated in the Environmental Assessment for the Lydgate Park-Kapa‘a Bike/Pedestrian Path (July 2007):

Act 50, Session Laws of Hawai‘i, 2000, requires that a proposed action’s impacts on the community’s cultural practices be disclosed in the environmental review process. A cultural impact assessment was conducted for the proposed Kapa‘a Relief Route by Cultural Surveys Hawai‘i (CSH) (Volumes I and II, 2004). Because the bike/pedestrian path corridor is fully contained within the highway corridor and both are linear transportation projects, the findings of the CSH study were reviewed for this environmental assessment. (p. 4-47)

The original Cultural Impact Assessment is being made available via this website with approval from the State of Hawai‘i, Department of Transportation (HDOT).

HDOT is currently preparing a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the Kapa‘a Relief Route project. Since the DEIS is not yet published, sections of the Cultural Impact Assessment related to the Kapa‘a Relief Route project have been deleted. Text from the original study has not been altered, and the deletions do not compromise the integrity of the information or the authors’ findings.
