Posted January 20, 2022, 6:30 AM HST ·Updated January 19, 7:48 PM

The county Department of Public Works and contractor Maui Kupuno Builders announced Wednesday that a lane closure on part of Ōma‘o Road will be necessary later this month as road repaving work continues.

Ōma‘o Road will be closed at Kōloa Road to all northbound traffic. Only southbound traffic from Kaumuali‘i Highway will be allowed through the work zone. The lane closure and one-way traffic are planned from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. on weekdays only.

Signs and flaggers will be positioned along the closure to direct traffic through the work zone. During this time, no parking will be allowed in the work area.

The repaving work is scheduled from Jan. 24-28 near the Kaumuali‘i Highway intersection.

Residents and motorists are advised to make appropriate arrangements to accommodate the necessary closure and adjusted traffic flow, use alternate routes and allow for extra time to get to destinations.

All work is weather permitting, and the schedule is subject to changes.
