The Hawai‘i Department of Transportation intends to declare a traffic emergency zone on Kuamoʻo Road (Route 580) in the vicinity of the ʻOpaekaʻa Falls Scenic Lookout in Wailua due to instability of the slope beneath the road.

A traffic emergency zone designation allows the state to expedite procurement and permitting to take action to construct improvements to protect access to the state road. Anyone wishing to comment on the designation may do so through a virtual public meeting to be conducted within 24 hours of the designation.

The meeting will be today at 9 a.m. over Microsoft Teams. Click here to join or call into 808-829-4853 using conference pin 210 008 99#.
