The Hawai‘i Department of Transportation will do a final inspection of work as part of the Kalihiwai Slope Stabilization Project off of Kūhiō Highway.

On June 18, the highway will be closed to a single lane between Kahiliholo Road and the Kalihiwai Bridge from 8:30-11 a.m.

The work was part of a federal aid project begun in 2020 that included debris removal, slope scaling, and installing drape mesh on the upper gradient to help stabilize the hillside above Kūhiō Highway.
