Posted August 29, 2021, 1:03 PM HST ·Updated August 29, 11:06 AM

The Department of Public Works and Goodfellow Bros. LLC. are announcing there will be partial lane closures on multiple sections of Kōloa Road and Maluhia Road from Aug. 30 to Sept. 3, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., for guardrail and shoulder work. Motorists are advised to expect brief and occasional delays.

Additionally, from Aug. 30 to Sept. 3, Ala Kalanikaumaka will be closed to southbound traffic from Kōloa Road to Lopaka Paipa Boulevard for crews to complete the makai portion of the Kōloa Road roundabout. This means that all eastbound traffic on Kōloa Road, heading into Kōloa Town, will be detoured to Po‘ipū Road. During this closure, the Kōloa Road roundabout will be open to westbound and eastbound traffic, and Ala Kalanikaumaka will remain open for northbound traffic.

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.

Substantial construction of the Kōloa Road roundabout is anticipated to complete by Sept. 3, 2021. Final completion is anticipated by Oct. 13, 2021. Dates and times are subject to change depending on weather and other factors.
