Aloha! Welcome to the official website for the Kalaeloa Barbers Point Harbor (KBPH) planning and development projects.


The Hawaii Department of Transportation (DOT) was established in 1959 to provide air, land and water transportation facilities supporting commerce and the state’s economy by providing efficient and cost effective transportation systems. It is comprised of three modal divisions: Airports, Harbors and Highways.

DOT, Harbors Division (DOT-H) is responsible for administering and managing the State-owned facilities used by cargo, passenger and fishing operations. Oahu is served by two commercial harbors: Honolulu Harbor and Kalaeloa Barbers Point Harbor (KBPH). Together these harbors work as an integrated system bringing all consumable goods, durables, building materials and fuel to the island.

Today, KBPH is the second busiest commercial harbor and serves as the primary ‘bulk’ harbor where much of the liquid- and dry-bulk cargos are handled. Completed in 1990, it is located 19 nautical miles west of Honolulu Harbor. It contains over 300 acres and is located in the ‘Ewa district of O‘ahu.

Planning and Development Projects

This website provides information about DOT-H’s ongoing planning and development projects for the KBPH.

KBPH 2040 Master Plan

The Kalaeloa Barbers Point Harbor 2040 Master Plan will recommend improvements necessary for KBPH over the next 25 plus years to meet the state’s needs. The 2040 Master Plan will recommend layout configurations for berthing, cargo/fuel storage, and yard operations as well as optimize vehicular circulation, vessel operational areas and ancillary facilities.

KBPH Fuel Pier Development Plan

DOT-H is preparing the Kalaeloa Barbers Point Harbor Fuel Pier Development Plan to develop a dedicated Fuel Pier to accommodate the various types of fuel and feedstock shipments that serve and could potentially serve the State’s fuel and energy markets. The plan will recommend pier infrastructure improvements to address projected increases in fuel imports and exports as well as relieve congestion for the general cargo and dry-bulk cargo that also utilizes KBPH.

KBPH Fuel Pier Environmental Impact Statement

An accompanying Kalaeloa Barbers Point Harbor Fuel Pier Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) will be prepared in accordance with Chapter 343, Hawaii Revised Statutes, to evaluate direct impacts associated with the proposed fuel pier development as well as indirect and cumulative impacts associated with its construction and long-term operation.
