The County of Hawai’i Department of Public Works Traffic Division will be conducting striping work beginning on Monday, April 25th as part of the road improvements on Waiānuenue Avenue between Carvalho Park and the makai intersection of Rainbow Drive. The working hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays, weather and construction conditions permitting.
The Traffic Division also announces that the one-way section of Rainbow Drive will be closed permanently to provide a safer pedestrian/wheelchair route to cross the bridge. The project also includes the widening of the existing T-intersection for bus and vehicular access to Rainbow Drive.
Motorists are advised to drive with caution as heavy vehicles and machinery will be in the work zone.
The County of Hawai‘i Department of Public Works apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause and thanks the community for their patience and understanding. If there are any questions or concerns, please call Barett Otani, Information and Education Specialist, at 961-8787.
