The State of Hawai’i Department of Transportation and the County of Hawai’i Department of Public Works have announced the following temporary road closures for Monday, Nov. 23 through Wednesday, Nov. 25.

Road work will be conducted between 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. by the DOT on the following roadways through Tuesday:

Work will be conducted along Hawai’i Belt Road, also known as Highway 19, between Kulaimano Road and Kauniho Road, in the Pepeekeo to Hakalau area. The work will cause alternating single lane closures as roadway improvements are conducted.

Highway 19 will be under an alternating single lane closure in both directions between Jardine Road and Old Mamalahoa Highway as crews work on roadway improvements.


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, 24-hour schedule as bridge rehabilitation work is underway. Speed on the bridge is reduced to 20 miles per hour.

Road work will be conducted between 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. by DPW on the following roadways through Wednesday:

Waikoloa Road will be under alternating lane closures as crews work to construct nine-foot asphalt concrete shoulders on both sides of Waikoloa Road from Highway 190 to Queen Ka’ahumanu Highway.


Ongoing construction work between Lanikaula Street and Kawili Street for the Kapiolani Extension continues. Alternating lane closures will take place about 800 feet towards Kawili Street. Street parking is unavailable in the area and two-way traffic will be reduced to one lane. Work includes the installation of a new concrete curb, drainage improvements, gutter and sidewalks, roadway reconstruction, signing and striping, utility relocation, driveway, and property tie-ins.

Reconstruction work on Komohana Street, from Kukuau Street towards Waianuenue Avenue, will be conducted. The project involves the reconstruction of about 4,000 feet of roadway, traffic signal upgrades, pavement striping, and the replacement of utility valves and boxes. Alternating lane closures will be in effect in the area. The roadwork will begin at 7 a.m.

Along Mamalahoa Highway, beginning at Farm and Garden Repair and extending past L&L Drive-Inn, a traffic shift to the mauka lane will take place. The shift will begin Wednesday, Nov 4 and last through May 2016. The traffic change is to accommodate the erection of a 475 foot retaining wall along the makai side of Mamalahoa Highway.


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