I noticed everything south of central Wailea is no greater than a "street" -- this makes for over 7 miles (as the crow flies) or more that doesn't have a PS (collector) or any other preferred path.

Are we sure this is appropriate?

This is according to the FC tables

Yup, I gathered.

But it is also a point where we need to talk about deviating from them.

There should be a primary street all the way down to La Perouse Bay.

We need to check with the RC on what circumstances would justify departing from the U.S. DOT standards that have been adopted nationally. What is the reason for saying there "should" be one? Is there a routing problem as a result of a lacking PS there?

In general, I'm assuming we're unlikely to be departing from the state/federal guidance. But I will check.

Well, there's a single road that acts as a collector, at least as far as the Makena Resort (actually further, but all routing will happen via this road past that point anyways), and is relevant because there are other "Streets" there as well that are not suitable for anything other than local / sightseeing traffic.

I understood the FC classification was to be a starting point, but that local discussion could have certain anomalies fixed. This, certainly, is an anomaly.

Coupled with the potential routing issues, there's the sub-issue of the visual nature.

Remember that a lot of highway designation in HI is political. The road (Hwy 37 / 31) from Ulupalakua to Hana is in FAR worse shape and much less travelled, yet it has a SR designation. It got that designation to get the feds to pay for a two-lane bridge across a gully -- a two-lane bridge that connects two roads that are single-lane traffic.
