HELCO Announces Partial Lane Closure for Transmission Line Upgrades

Hawaii Electric Light Company announces a partial lane closure along sections of Highway 190 from just south of Puu Waawaa (23-mile marker) to Makalei Golf Course (32-mile marker) from mid-September through December 2016. The closure will allow crews to upgrade transmission lines and equipment to improve system reliability.


Contractors are expected to begin hole digging operations starting mid-September. One lane will be closed to traffic from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. Motorists are advised to expect delays of up to 20 minutes and encouraged to use alternate routes, if possible.

Hawaii Electric Light regrets any inconvenience this may cause and thanks the community for their patience and understanding.
