Portion of Kawaihau Road to close for clearing and roadwork next week
A portion of Kawaihau Road will be closed from Jan. 23-27, from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. for clearing and grubbing, roadway excavation, and sidewalk construction.
According to the County Department of Public Works, 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.
This area contains St. Catherine’s School/Church, Kapaʻa High School, Kapaʻa Elementary School, Mahelona Hospital, and Gore Park.
The project has an estimated completion date of July 2023. Dates and times are subject to change depending on weather and other factors.
Motorists are advised to expect brief and occasional delays. Exercise caution and drive slowly when commuting through the work area.
