miles
In addition to the plans underway to construct an eastern bypass of Lahaina (see following State route 3000 listing), there are longer-range plans, still being worked out, to also widen to four lanes and realign the highway southeast of Lahaina to Maalaea (or at least to the two-lane Olowalu Tunnel). Much of the highway would be moved inland to keep shore erosion from undercutting the roadbed, avoid occasional closures from high waves, and free up the existing right-of-way for a proposed new shoreline park. Construction is expected to begin no earlier than 2012.
Photos Parts of highway north of Honokahua are narrow and winding.

NO ROAD CONNECTION BETWEEN THE SOUTHERN END OF State route 31 IN WAILEA AND THE EASTERN County route 31 COUNTY-MAINTAINED SEGMENT OF THE PIILANI HIGHWAY THROUGH UPCOUNTRY EAST MAUI. See the item for Former state route 31? Makena Road (FORMER) below for more information.
See also the following listings for Former state route 31? Wailea Alanui Drive, Makena Alanui Road, and Makena Road (part) for an open (though sometimes narrow and rough) road from the current south end of State route 31 in Wailea to La Perouse Bay on the southwestern corner of Maui.
Hawaii DOT plans (subject to funding availability) to build a new connection between State route 31 and County route 31, to replace the Makena Road link closed about two decades ago (see below). See the listing for future State route 374 on table 2, a planned new highway between State route 31 at Kaonoulu Street in Kihei (well north of State route 31's southern end in Wailea), and JN State route 37County route 371 near Pukalani, about 16 miles north of the western end of County route 31, to connect science facilities in Kihei with others atop the Haleakala volcano. Another option, which was earlier explored by Hawaii DOT, and which still has local supporters, would extend State route 31 south of Wailea past Makena, then northeast and uphill to join County route 31 at its junction with State route 37. These options are not mutually exclusive.

The information I have on former Former state route 31 routing(s) is conflicting. The preceding South Kihei Road segment is the one I am most confident was a former alignment of route 31. Hawaii DOT planning documents from the 1960s indicate that route 31 was a designated state route, open along the coast down to Kalama Park, but south of there route 31 was shown only as a proposed route southeast from the coast connecting to County route 31 at Ulupalakua in upcountry east Maui. Other information suggests that pending that proposed inland (re-)routing, route 31 extended further south along the coast, perhaps down to and including the now-closed Makena Road (FORMER) connection to County route 31, or even (less likely) LaPerouse Bay.

Another complication is that parts of the original coastal road south from Kihei to Wailea and Makena were closed and/or bypassed by Okolani Drive, Wailea Alanui Drive, and Makena Alanui Road, to make way for new resorts along the shoreline. It is particularly unclear whether those roads were ever part of route 31, but a set of Maui County planning maps suggest that route 31 followed at least part of Wailea Alanui Drive, down to and perhaps including Makena Road (FORMER), via Kaukahi Street, the segment below of still-open (Old) Makena Road, and a part of (Old) Makena Road later absorbed by Makena Alanui Road. The former (Old) Makena Road segment was later bypassed by Makena Alanui Road, but it is unclear when that happened, or whether the route 31 designation ever shifted to the new Makena Alanui alignment before the designation was removed altogether for the roads along the coast between Kihei and Makena.

Here's a rundown on the possible former 31 routings south of Kalama Park shown on various Maui or Hawaii statewide maps I have reviewed, which include various permutations of the Former state route 31 segments shown below (the preceding Former state route 31 South Kihei Road segment north of Kalama Park is common to all pre-1981 routings):

1959 Bryan's Sectional Maps, 1973 Atlas of Hawaii, 1975 Skipper Maps, 1976 Compass Maps: includes South Kihei Road (both segments), South Kihei Road/(Old) Makena Road, part of Makena Alanui Road, Makena Road (FORMER) segments.

1976 Maui County planning map: includes South Kihei Road (both segments), South Kihei Road/(Old) Makena Road, Makena Alanui Road, and Makena Road segments all the way to LaPerouse Bay; does not include Makena Road (FORMER) to Ulupalakua.

1981 Maui County numbered county routes maps: include at least Wailea Alanui Drive, Kaukahi Street, part of South Kihei Road/(Old) Makena Road, part of Makena Alanui Road, and Makena Road (FORMER) segments, and probably also part of State route 31 Piilani Highway, plus Kilohana Drive, South Kihei Road (second segment below), and Okolani Drive segments. (These maps show all of the numbered county routes, but do not include the foregoing segments among them, suggesting that those segments were part of a numbered state route.)

1969 and 1975 Rand McNally Hawaii foldup maps: include only first South Kihei Road segment below, show route 31 as ending in Keawakapu

1985 AAA Hawaii foldup map: includes part of State route 31 Piilani Highway, plus Kilohana Drive, South Kihei Road (second segment below), Okolani Drive, Wailea Alanui Drive, and Makena Alanui Road segments below, ending in Makena instead of continuing either to La Perouse Bay or Ulupalakua.

While the listings below discuss various possible segments of former "state" route 31, it is possible that the route 31 designation for some or all of them was made by Maui County rather than Hawaii DOT, and that they always were (as is now the case) county rather than state roads. This is particularly likely for segments built, or incorporated into route 31, after the late 1960s when Hawaii's combined state and county route number system was divided into discrete state and county networks. None of the Hawaii DOT annual reports or other historical records I have reviewed indicate that the state constructed or maintained any of the following segments, particularly the ones most recently built (such as Wailea Alanui Drive and Makena Alanui Road).

Just after statehood in 1961, a Hawaii DOT plan showed a "proposed new route" 310 (perhaps on new alignment) following the coast from Kihei to Keawakapu, then turning inland on a new alignment toward the southeast to connect to what is now County route 31 Piilani Highway at Ulupalakua. Part of this proposal evolved into the new State route 31 Piilani Highway decades later. The plan also showed a "possible future highway" route 321, running along the coast (on unspecified alignment) 10.6 miles from Keawakapu to La Perouse Bay. The latter proposal disappeared from later Hawaii DOT plans, though it may have resurfaced as one of the above possible Former state route 31 routings.

Photos In July 2006, a temporary "mini-bypass" of Paia was opened. It is privately-owned (by a large local landowner, through whose holdings the road passes), one-way eastbound and one-lane, and only during the afternoon rush, for commuters from eastbound State route 36 west of Paia to turn south onto County route 390 Baldwin Avenue south of Paia. Commercial traffic is not allowed. This is intended to relieve chronic afternoon rush congestion through Paia. A full-time permanent bypass for all Hana Highway through traffic in both directions remains a long-range option under active consideration, but don't hold your breath waiting for that to happen.

Bridge log
Winding, narrow road with hundreds of curves and more than three dozen one-lane bridges. Expect to average 15 mph or less (especially if you stop for the abundant photo opportunities).

Also, weight restrictions to protect the many historic bridges on this route (as well as the even more severe restrictions on County route 31, the only other road to Hana) limit truck traffic to and from east Maui.
