Multiple sections of Kōloa Road are scheduled for lane closures from July 19-23. Multiple sections of Kōloa Road will be under short lane closures for shoulder work from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., expect brief occasional delays.

Continuing July 18-24, a 24-hour closure will be implemented to complete the Makai half of the new Koloa Road Roundabout. All Southbound traffic heading into Koloa Town will be detoured to Ala Kalanikaumaka and Lopaka Paipa Boulevard. Ala Kalanikaumaka will be closed at Lopaka Paipa Boulevard for northbound traffic, and motorists will be detoured to Lopaka Paipa Boulevard and Poipu Road.

Westbound traffic on Koloa Road will be routed through the newly constructed Mauka half of the Koloa Road Roundabout, and the left turn onto Ala Kalanikaumaka will be permanently closed.

As a reminder, large trucks & trailers and 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. Ōma‘o Road is a narrow residential road that is not intended to be used as a detour route and is 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.

Construction of the Koloa Road Roundabout is currently projected to be substantially complete by Aug. 24, 2021. The current projected project final completion date is Oct. 13, 2021. Dates and times are subject to change depending on weather and other factors. For questions or concerns, contact Tristan Gonzales at 808-462-8057 or Ryan Moura at 808-298-2431.
