One week to go! I'm so excited.
There will be a dedication and a blessing just prior to its opening (that day).
There is still a 5.7 mile section of realignment to be done on the Hilo side.
Thanks to Aaron Stone for tirelessly posting updates.
The old portion will remain open. I am guessing the Army training will continue to use the old road. I never liked that section, as a road. The scenery of Waiki'i Ranch is pretty, but the narrow road was tricky, and as for the Steps portion, won't miss it at all. No more one lane sections with yields, woohoo!
