The Roundabout at the Intersection of Pi‘ikea Avenue and Līloa Drive opened for use in April 2012 and replaces a multi-lane, all-way stop. It was designed to accommodate large tractor-trailers, while fostering slow driving speeds for pedestrian and driver safety.
PBR HAWAII’s landscape design for the roundabout at the Intersection of Pi‘ikea Avenue and Līloa Drive in Kīhei consists of ornamental and native plants that provide color and texture to produce a calming effect for both drivers and pedestrians. The planting arrangement creates a chevron pattern in the medians with the use of Golden Duranta and grass. Other plant species such as Pōhinahina, Hula Girl Hibiscus, Bougainvillea, Natal Plum, and Queen’s Palm, and 4 to 6 inch diameter stones along the curbs, help keep maintenance to a minimum by reducing water consumption.
With the Roundabout at the Intersection of Pi‘ikea Avenue and Līloa Drive the County Department of Public Works sets an exemplary precedence for future roundabouts to be implemented at other intersections around the Island of Maui.
