Several roadways will be closed and a temporary route change is planned for The Kaua‘i Bus to accommodate for a parade this weekend in Kōloa.
The annual Historic Kōloa Plantation Days Parade is scheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday, July 30. The Kaua‘i Police Department will close off all streets along the parade route from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
Roads to be closed are:
- Po‘ipū Road, from the Old Cane Haul Road near Kiahuna Golf Course to Kōloa Road.
- Kōloa Road, from Ala Kalanikaumaka to Weliweli Road.
- Maluhia Road, from Kōloa Road to Ala Kinoiki.
During these road closures, The Kaua‘i Bus also will not have service in the Kōloa area. There will be no service at the Kōloa Telephone Exchange, Kōloa Elementary School, Kukuiula Store, Kōloa Post Office and Kōloa Neighborhood Center bus stops. The closest bus stop on the southern part of the island for those needing to travel to Po‘ipū that day is in Kalāheo.
Motorists needing to get to Po‘ipū and Kōloa towns during the temporary road closures can do so via Waila‘au Road or Ala Kinoiki and Ala Kalanikaumaka.
In addition, Ho‘owili Road will be closed from 6-9 a.m. Sunday, July 31, for the Kukuiula Outrigger Canoe Club fun run. During this time, Po‘ipū Beach Park can be accessed via Ho‘one Road by way of Pe‘e Road and Po‘ipū Road.
Motorists should allow additional time to get to their destinations as traffic delays are expected. Officers will be manning all road closures.
