More lane closures scheduled for sections of Kapa‘a
Several roadways in Kapa‘a will once again experience traffic shifts as construction of a new roundabout continues.
Portions of Mailihuna Road, Hau‘a‘ala Road and Kawaihau Road will be closed from 7:30 a.m.-3 p.m. Oct. 10-14 as crews continue their work. The intersection of the three roads will experience temporary traffic shifts, and temporary traffic control plans will be in place.
Dates and times are subject to change depending on weather and other factors.
No road work will occur during peak traffic times for school drop off and pick up.
During the next several weeks, traffic control configurations around the intersection will change as construction progresses. Various sections of the roundabout will require closing, and detour routes will vary through each phase.
The public is urged to exercise caution and drive slowly through the marked detour areas, particularly through Kolohala Road.
The project includes the construction of a peanut-shaped roundabout, sidewalks, paved shoulders and various other roadway improvements to improve the safety and operations of the five-way intersection of these three roads and for people using multiple modes to travel efficiently and safely through this part of Kapaʻa. The area contains St. Catherine’s School/Church, Kapaʻa High School, Kapaʻa Elementary School, Mahelona Hospital and Gore Park.
The roundabout portion of the project is expected to be finished in November. The project as a whole is estimated to be completed in July 2023.
