Rant: Road Rage


Published:

You’ll find a scar of asphalt on the makai side of Kapiolani Boulevard, just before Atkinson Drive and the Convention Center. All day long, traffic pushes asphalt up and out of a chronic pothole, into a pile that’s now higher than the curb itself. When the pothole gets too deep, a city crew comes along and fills it with fresh asphalt—but leaves behind an ever-growing mound of overflow. Why pick on this manini detail? Because it says something about the city’s attitude. Every time this pothole gets refilled, someone looks at the pile of overflow and shrugs, saying, “Good enough.” Makes us wonder what little details the city is ignoring on the multimillion-dollar sewage and water main project now under way on the same street.
