The state Senate is looking at ways to ease traffic problems by improving highway and road designs.

According to last year’s Inrix Traffic Scorecard, Honolulu ranked second behind Los Angeles in the worst traffic congestion among 100 cities in the United States.

The U.S. General Accounting Office predicts that road congestion across the nation will triple in 15 years.

Senate Transportation Chairman J. Kalani English says that Hawaii needs to shift its attitudes about road usage and solving traffic problems. He suggests that communities need to be planned for all road users, not just cars.

The Transportation Committee on Thursday heard about ways to improve roads for all users from Don Burden, executive director for the Walkable and Livable Communities Institute.
