Summary: because the State won't actually spend enough money to build highways which meet the needs of growth, we're all going to be sitting in traffic.

Highlights are "amusing" in that they're outlined as "solutions" in the PCDP -- which seems to be based on the flawed assumption that money will be available to build infrastructure.

The answer lies in implementing community development plans, with bikeable and walkable communities and jobs close to population centers. "You need to put the jobs and commercial venues where the population centers are," Olson said.

East Hawaii traffic problems could be addressed with a $288 million “mid-level” road between Hilo and Pahoa makai of Highway 130.
