Roadway Resurfacing Work on Kamāmalu Street

The County Highway Maintenance Division will begin resurfacing work on the Kamāmalu Street roadway from the intersection with Māmalahoa Highway to the Kamanawa Street intersection on Monday, March 5, 2018, and is estimated to be completed on Wednesday, March 7, 2018. Working hours are from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., weather and construction conditions permitting.

Motorists are advised to expect delays and to drive with caution as heavy vehicles and machinery will be in the work zone. Alternating lane closures will be in effect and at a minimum, one lane of travel (for two-way traffic) will be provided through the construction area.

The lane closures are necessary to complete the roadway resurfacing work in a timely manner and for the safety of the workers and the traveling public. Special off-duty police officers will be posted in the area to facilitate traffic movement.

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, contact Barett Otani, Information and Education Specialist at (808) 961-8787.
