Lane closures scheduled March 18-24 for Kawaihau and Pelehu roads in Kapa‘a
Portions of Kawaihau Road and Pelehu Road will be closed from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. March 20-24, weather permitting.
On March 18, Kawaihau Road and Pelehu Road will experience a one lane-closure and detours on Saturday. Kawaihau Road will experience temporary traffic shifts and road narrowing. Pelehu Road will be closed from Kawaihau Road to Nunu Road, with traffic being limited to residents in the closed roadway area. From March 20-24, a portion of Kawaihau Road will experience periodic one-lane closure and road narrowing.
“Local traffic only” signs will be installed to inform motorists, who are advised to expect delays and to exercise caution and drive slowly when commuting through the work area.
Pelehu Road and its intersection with Kawaihau Road will be open to the public after the work is complete.
The closures and detours are necessary so crews can proceed with clearing and grubbing, roadway excavation, sidewalk construction and roadway construction as part of an ongoing roundabout construction project. The project aims to construct a peanut-shaped roundabout, sidewalks, paved shoulders and various other roadway upgrades to improve the safety and operations of the five-way intersection of Kawaihau Road, Hau’a’ala Road and Mailihuna Road.
The project is expected to be completed in October.
Any questions or concerns can be directed to Junard Mata of Grace Pacific LLC., contractor for the project, by calling 808-694-9784.
