Kōloa and Maluhia Roads are scheduled for lane closures till Jan. 15 for various work.

Kōloa Road, from Piko Road to Kaumuali‘i Highway, will be under a single-lane closure for shoulder construction and pavement work from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Westbound traffic on Kōloa Road will be detoured through Piko Road. Only eastbound traffic will be allowed on Kōloa Road, between Piko Road to Kaumuali‘i Highway. Also, Kōloa Road, from Po‘ipū Road and Ala Kalanikaumaka, will have a single-lane closure for fire hydrant installation.

In addition, striping work is 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 please 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.

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.
