Multiple sections of Kōloa Road and Maluhia Road will be under short lane closures for guardrail work and shoulder work from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., from Aug. 2-6.

Continuing Aug. 1 to Aug. 7, a 24-hour closure will be implemented to complete the makai half of the new Kōloa Road roundabout. All Southbound traffic heading into Kōloa 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 Po‘ipū Road. Westbound traffic on Kōloa Road will be routed through the newly constructed mauka half of the Kōloa Roundabout and the left turn onto Ala Kalanikaumaka will be permanently closed.

As a reminder, large trucks and trailers and eastbound motorists from the Westside, 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 Kōloa Road roundabout is currently projected to be substantially complete by Aug. 24, 2021. The current projected project’s final completion date is Oct. 13, 2021. Dates and times are subject to change depending on weather and other factors. If you have any questions or concerns, contact Tristan Gonzales at 808-462-8057 or Ryan Moura at 808-298-2431.
