Tree trimming work on Kaumuali’i Highway in Kalāheo starts Monday
The Hawaiʻi Department of Transportation is notifying Kauaʻi motorists of upcoming on Monday for tree trimming work.
There will be a single-lane closure in the westbound direction, in the vicinity of Lauoho Road and Puʻuwai Road July 10-14 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. for tree trimming maintenance.
Alternating traffic will be routed through the open eastbound lane.
According to a press release, work of this nature must be completed on a daytime schedule for safety of crews and motorists. Performing tree trimming work at night is dangerous due to the lighting and shadows causing poor sight conditions.
Motorists are advised to utilize alternate routes, if possible; expect delays and proceed with caution through the work area. Electronic message boards will be in place to notify motorists of closure information.
All roadwork is weather–permitting.
