Road and lane closures on the Big Island continue through the weekend at various locations.

Road work projects will continue over the weekend at the Umauma Bridge and the Pahoa Roundabout.

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.

The Hawai’i County Department of Public Works also notes continued reconstruction work on Komohana Street, from Kukuau Street towards Waianuenue Avenue. 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.
