The State of Hawai’i Department of Transportation has announced the following temporary road closures for Monday, July 27 through Friday, July 31 between 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.

On Highway 19, also known as Hawai’i Belt Road, an alternating single lane closure in both directions will take place between Jardine Road and Puualaea Homestead Road. The roadway improvements will be conducted near Laupahoehoe Gulch.

Roadway improvements will also be done between Kulaimano Road and Kauniho Road on Highway 19. Alternating single lane closures will be in place. The work will be conducted in the vicinity of Pepeekeo to Hakalau.

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.

Along the Daniel K. Inouye Highway, headed westbound between Old Saddle Road and Mamalahoa Highway, a single lane closure will be in effect beginning Tuesday and lasting through Friday. The partial closure is necessary to make roadway safety improvements and will be conducted between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. During the closure, the westbound lane will be shifted to the eastbound lane and one lane of traffic will be open in each direction.


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.
