    What a major fukkup! Traffic messed up since Saturday, and is expected to run through Thursday. Millions of people got stuck in traffic for days. (Got that from Trump and his use of "alternate facts") I've been stuck in that carnage a few times already and it really looks like a gov't job, 20 guys standing around and 1 guy working.

    Now everyone who lives in Hawaii Kai area is experiencing a normal day in Hawaii Nei on the westside.
    Perhaps everyone will take more seriously what the folks on the westside AND north shore is complaining about.
    Traffic really messes up productivity and what a waste of time to spend time in day in and day out twice a day!
    This is why Rail is alive and such a huge debate. No one cares if it doesnt affect them, no one wants to pay for it on their own dime, and no one can find a much cheaper effective alternative.

    Rail? The Mayor and his buddies' personal retirement fund? That lying sack of shit asked for the GET to be extended to 2027, now he admits that is not enough and wants it to be permanent. He also wants to raise property tax rates, parking fees, weight pay for the Rail.

    As for the traffic from the water main break, this was more of an extraordinary occurrence. Something similar is when the military smashed the freeway overpass that resulted in closure of the H1 westbound. BWS response is decent on a local level, but many will say it took too long. In half the time it took to repair the water main, a much larger sinkhole in Fukuoka, Japan was repaired.
