LIHUE – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) notifies the public that Kuhio Highway from Kuamoo Road to Kapaa Bypass, in the vicinity of the former Coco Palms property, will be resurfaced beginning on Sunday night, June 24, 2018. Lane closures will occur weekly on Sunday nights through Thursday nights from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., nightly.


Next week one lane will be closed on Kuhio Highway on Sunday night, June 24, 2018 through Friday morning, June 29, 2018. The direction of the closed lane will vary based on the work. Traffic will be maintained in both directions in the two remaining open lanes.


The project includes the reconstruction of weakened pavement areas, resurfacing, pavement markings, and traffic signal upgrades at the Haleilio Road and Kuamoo Road intersections with Kuhio Highway.


Work is expected to be completed by the end of Summer 2018. Roadwork is weather permitting.
