Reconstruction work on Umauma Bridge continues this weekend, according to the State of Hawai’i Department of Transportation. Construction work on the Pahoa Roundabout is also slated to continue through the weekend.

The Umauma Bridge and Pahoa Roundabout areas are both under a 24-hour traffic change period.

The Umauma Bridge, which is located near mile marker 16 on Highway 19, is undergoing bridge rehabilitation. Speed on the bridge is reduced to 20 miles per hour.

In Pahoa, the Keaau-Pahoa Bypass Road in both directions, between Pahoa Marketplace and Kahakai Boulevard, is closed for the construction of the Pahoa Roundabout. Temporary traffic signals are installed to direct traffic at the Kahakai Boulevard and Pahoa Village Road intersection. Motorists are advised to drive through the detour with caution.

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