Posted September 2, 2022, 9:14 AM HST

Portions of Mailihuna Road, Hau‘a‘ala Road, and Kawaihau Road will be closed from Sept. 6-10 for clear and grubbing work, roadway excavation, and sidewalk construction.

Work will take place from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The intersection of Mailihuna Road, Hau‘a‘ala Road, and Kawaihau Road will experience temporary traffic shifts, and temporary traffic control plans will be in place.

No road work will occur during the peak traffic times for school drop-off and pick-up.

Motorists are encouraged to allow for extra travel time when driving near the work area and follow all construction traffic controls. Please exercise caution and drive slowly when commuting through the work area.

The project aims to construct a peanut-shaped roundabout, sidewalks, paved shoulders, and various other roadway improvements to help improve the safety and operations of the 5-way intersection of these three roads and for people using multiple modes to travel efficiently and safely through Kawaihau Road, Hau’a’ala Road, and Mailihuna Road located in Kapaʻa, Kaua’i Island, Hawai’i.

This area contains St. Catherine’s School/Church, Kapaʻa High School, Kapaʻa Elementary School, Mahelona Hospital, and Gore Park.

The roundabout portion of the project has an estimated completion date of November 2022. The project as a whole has an estimated completion date of July 2023.

Dates and times are subject to change depending on weather and other factors. For questions or concerns, call Braeden Armstrong of Grace Pacific, LLC. at 808-354-7651.
