Weekend lane closure scheduled at Kawaihae and Kohala Mountain Roads
The Hawaiʻi Department of Transportation is notifying motorists of an upcoming closure on Sunday at the intersection of Kawaihae and Kohala Mountain Roads, near Waiʻaka Bridge.
A single-lane closure will be needed at the intersection from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for pothole filling and repaving. Flaggers and special duty police officers will be staged at either end of the work area to manage traffic through the three-way stop.
During the closure, crews will monitor traffic flow through the work area to maintain manageable wait times on either side. A project to improve the intersection is scheduled to begin construction in 2025.
Motorists are advised to expect delays and proceed with caution through the work area. Electronic message boards will be in place to notify motorists of closure information.
All roadwork is weather permitting.
