The West Maui Greenway is a proposed 25-mile, multi-use trail that will connect Ukumehame to Lipoa Point—providing needed connections for the residents of West Maui.
To bring the vision for this greenway to life, Alta worked with the Maui Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) to develop the West Maui Greenway Master Plan. When complete, the greenway will connect destinations and businesses while providing safe and welcoming recreation and transportation opportunities that are separated from traffic in West Maui.
The plan is oriented around five goals: fostering community, bringing joy, strengthening connectivity, promoting safety and comfort, and ensuring feasibility. It also aims to see that this major community asset highlights the diverse history, landscape, and culture of the region while providing safe and comfortable connections to local destinations.
Alta led the development of this Master Plan, including conducting public engagement, evaluating and prioritizing route alternatives, and developing design guidance and visualizations. Alta also helped the MPO pursue implementation funding through a Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) grant application to build the highest priority segment between Lahaina Recreation Center and Launiupoko Beach Park.
