The Area of Potential Effects is a geographic area within which an undertaking may directly or indirectly cause alterations in the character or use of historic properties, if any such properties exist.

The proposed alignments were adapted from the County of Maui’s Pali to Puamana plan. The alignments converge at serval points with two distinct areas where the alignments differ from one another: one in Olowalu and the other in Ukumehame. The preferred alternative may be selected from two differing proposed alternatives one in each of the two differing areas.
