No work will be conducted Thursday evening, Aug. 15, through Friday morning, Aug. 16, in observance of the statehood holiday on Friday.

Daytime shoulder paving is scheduled from Aug. 19 to Aug. 30. Goodfellow Brothers Inc., will pave the shoulder of Māmalahoa Highway between Mealani Road and Kipu’upu’u Street, weather permitting. That work will take place from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

It is anticipated that once that portion of paving is complete, work will continue Monday, Aug. 26, through Friday, Aug. 30, paving the intersections between Kalake Street and Kipu‘upu‘u Street where side roads connect with Māmalahoa Highway.
