The State of Hawai’i Department of Transportation has announced the following temporary road closures for Monday, June 22 through Friday, June 26 between 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.

On Route 19, also known as Hawai’i Belt Road, alternating single lane closures will occur in both directions between Kulaimano Road and Kauniho Road. The work will consist of roadway improvements in the vicinity of Pepeekeo to Hakalau.

Highway 19 will also be under an alternating single lane closure in both directions between Jardine Road and Puualaea Homestead Road. The work will be conducted in the vicinity of Laupahoehoe Gulch as roadway improvements are made.

In addition, work along Highway 19 in the vicinity of Kaawalii Gulch, between Jardine Road and Old Mamalahoa Highway, will be under a single lane closure in both directions. Roadway improvements will cause the closure.

Continuous activity on Umauma Bridge in Hakalau will cause alternating lane closures near mile marker 16 on Highway 19 to remain on a seven-day-a-week, twenty-four-hour schedule as bridge rehabilitation work is underway. Speed on the bridge is reduced to 20 miles per hour.


All lane closures are weather permitting and have the possibility of changing without notice.
