Partial lane closures are scheduled next week on multiple sections of Kōloa and Maluhia Roads for punch list items and shoulder work.

Work is scheduled for Sept. 7-10 from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Motorists are advised to expect brief and occasional delays.

Additionally, Ala Kalanikaumaka will be closed from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. to southbound traffic from Kōloa Road to Lopaka Paipa Boulevard for crews to complete the makai portion of the Kōloa Road roundabout.

As a result, 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.

Final completion is anticipated by Oct. 13, 2021. Dates and times are subject to change depending on weather and other factors.

For questions or concerns, call Tristan Gonzales at 808-462-8057 or Ryan Moura at 808-298-2431.
