Kalealoa Barber's Point Harbor

The Hawaii Department of Transportation (DOT) was established to provide air, land and water transportation facilities supporting commerce and the state’s economy. It is comprised of three model divisions: Airports, Harbors and Highways.

"What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it."

In Highways, they are not so good because the funds have been going for the Rail Disaster but they are doing very well in the other sectors. And we have covered the Kalealoa Airport in prior blogs and which is developing very nicely with additional housing and Industrial Parks being planned. We all know that the Present Rail Party is trying to stop that. The residents can live, work and perhaps later on play in their own kuleana.

Not very well known is that Oahu is now being served by two commercial harbors: Honolulu Harbor and Kalaeloa Barbers Point Harbor. Together these harbors work as an integrated system bringing all consumable goods, durables, building materials and fuel to the island.

"The most important part of getting what you want is knowing what you want."

Today, KBPH is a very busy commercial harbor and serves as the primary ‘bulk’ harbor where much of the liquid- and dry-bulk cargos are handled. Completed in 1990, it contains over 300 acres and is located just west of Kapolei. In spite of the Present Rail Party, it will also have additional housing and industrial parks to complete the picture.

Kapolei will be well on its way to being second city, with their own Airport and Harbor. Hopefully they will get the much needed industrial parks so that the residents can work nearby and avoid the horrible traffic situation in Honolulu as much as possible. Live, work and play in the West - Second City.

Pub's Side Note: Sorry folks but I had to shut down Town Dancer blog again. The Scam Spam Robots are getting in again. Blogger just doesn't have the programmers with the capability to stop them.
