The State of Hawai’i Department of Transportation and the Hawai’i County Department of Public Works have announced the following temporary road closures for Monday, Aug. 3 through Friday, Aug. 7 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.
Work on the Kapiolani Street Extension in Hilo will cause a temporary lane closure. Portions of Kapiolani Street from Lanikaula Street about 800 feet towards Kawili Street will be affected. Along the roadway, two-way traffic will be reduced to one lane and parking along the street will not be available in the area.
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.
