Only local traffic will be allowed on Aliʻi Drive from Palani Road to near Courtyard King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Hotel in Kailua-Kona as the makai lane will be closed beginning Dec. 12 as the Hawaiʻi County Department of Public Works conducts emergency repairs.

The repairs to Aliʻi Drive are needed because of changing sea levels and tidal impacts that have caused deterioration beneath the roadway and sidewalk. The work is scheduled to be completed by Feb. 24, 2023.

The community can access Aliʻi Drive through the designated detour on Hualālai Road. The northbound lane of the road will remain open during the repair work.
