Short, intermittent closures are scheduled for Hanalei Bridge on Kūhiō Highway near mile maker 1.2 for routine maintenance of its wooden plank deck.

The work is scheduled for Sunday and Monday night, June 26-27, from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Electronic message boards were deployed Monday, June 20, on the Princeville side and the Hanalei Town side to inform travelers along that corridor of the scheduled work.

Throughout the evening work hours there will be short, intermittent closures of 5 to 10 minutes to replace damaged boards. Traffic control flaggers will be stationed at either end of the work zone to assist with traffic flow during the work period. Emergency vehicles will continue to have access through the area during this time.

Work is weather permitting.
