Times Revised For Closure of Portions of Menehune Road, Waimea Swinging Bridge
The county announced last week that times have been revised for the upcoming closure of portions of Menehune Road and the Waimea Swinging Bridge.
The closure will now be from 7:30 a.m.-5 p.m. from Monday, June 27, through Aug. 12, weather permitting. However, the midday opening will remain the same, from noon-12:30 p.m.
Additionally, from Monday through Friday this week, June 27-July 1, only there will be a 10-minute opening for traffic from 8:30-8:40 a.m.
The closure is necessary to allow Prometheus Construction to install rockfall impact barriers above Menehune Road.
The county Roads Division will provide “Road Closed” signs and a message board with information about road closures during the construction period. The state Department of Land and Natural Resources alternate emergency access route from Waimea Canyon Drive will only be open to residents and first responders with four-wheel drive vehicles.
