The Hawai‘i Department of Transportation says that Hawai‘i County has been notified and emergency vehicles will use alternate routes, if necessary, as the work involves milling of the existing roadway and fill with hot mix asphalt.

HDOT says the use of the hot mix asphalt and extended weekend work hours will allow HDOT to complete the necessary paving in the area in one weekend versus over the course of a week.
