Posted January 5, 2021, 8:52 PM HST

The Department of Public Works and Goodfellow Bros. LLC., are announcing that sections of Kōloa Road and Maluhia Road are scheduled for lane closures from Jan. 4 to Jan. 8.

Multiple sections of Kōloa Road will be under single-lane closures for shoulder construction and pavement work, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

In addition, pavement marking, sign installation, and guardrail work are scheduled on Maluhia Road under a single-lane closure from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

One lane of alternating traffic will be maintained during these closures, and flaggers will be positioned to assist motorists. Traffic delays may occur during these closures, so plan ahead. Motorists are advised to follow all traffic control signs and personnel.

Dates and times are subject to change depending on weather and other factors.

Given the intensity of the work on Kōloa Road, eastbound motorists from the West Side, Kalāheo, or Lāwa‘i are recommended to take Kaumuali‘i Highway to Maluhia Road to access Kōloa and Po‘ipū.

As a reminder, Ōma‘o Road is a narrow residential road that is not intended to be used as a detour route and not designed for high volumes of traffic or truck traffic. The speed limit is 25 mph for the entire length of Ōma‘o Road. Through trucks are prohibited on Ōma‘o Road for the duration of this project.
