In anticipation of Hurricane Douglas, the Hawai‘i County Department of Public Works announced Thursday that public access to Waipi‘o Valley will be closed starting at 7 a.m. Saturday, July 25 until further notice.

Special duty officers and Waipi‘o Valley Rangers will be on-site at the top of the road leading into the valley to ensure that valley access is restricted to local traffic only — residents, landowners, and farmers. Local traffic will be allowed to pass through a single-vehicle at a time.

If there are any questions or concerns, call the Department of Public Works at 808-961-8321.
