A change in traffic flow is expected for several days later this month on part of Po‘ipū Road near Kōloa Elementary School because of construction work.

The county Department of Public Works and Pacific Concrete Cutting and Coring Inc. announced Friday that a portion of Po‘ipū Road will be under construction from Dec. 20-Jan. 3 for the start of the Kōloa Safe Routes to School Project. Partial lane closures are expected from Dec. 22-23 and Dec. 29-30.

Work is scheduled from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Motorists are advised to expect occasional delays and are reminded that the speed limit is 15 mph near Kōloa Elementary while school is in session.

There will be no work on Dec. 24 and Dec. 31 in observance of Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve.

Dates and times are subject to change depending on weather and other factors.

The Kōloa Safe Routes to School Project involves improvements to pedestrian access to the school, including new sidewalks, crosswalks and ramps. Safe walking routes for students, parents and pedestrians will be provided.

The project is scheduled to be complete in June 2022.
