Please see in BOLD adjustments to tomorrow’s convoy schedule.


WAINIHA – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) will be running the Sunday/Holiday schedule for limited access to the communities of Wainiha and Haena for Wednesday, Aug. 21, 2018.

The schedule change is at the request of community members that asked for more access to aid in their hurricane preparation activities in advance of Hurricane Lane.

Following coordination calls with the National Weather Service and federal, state, and county emergency management tomorrow morning, HDOT will announce any additional modification to the convoy schedules.
