Supreme Court upholds land condemnation for Big Island road


KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii — The state Supreme Court has upheld Hawaii County’s 2005 condemnation of property in South Kona for the Mamalahoa bypass road.

West Hawaii Today reports the 72-page ruling was handed down Wednesday.

The owner of the land, the Coupe family, has 90 days to ask the court to reconsider its decision or to request the U.S. Supreme Court to take the case.

The 5.5-mile bypass road was initially to be built by 1250 Oceanside Partners as part of the luxury Hokulia subdivision development.

Incoming Hawaii County Council Chairman Dominic Yagong calls the road project a priority for the Big Island.
