Kaua‘i lane closures week of Sept. 27

LIHU‘E — Starting Monday, Sept. 27, there will be a single lane closure along Kuhio Highway between Mailihuna Road and Kawaihau Road, in the vicinity of St. Catherine Cemetery.

Kuhio Highway will be reduced to one lane, and travel in both directions will be maintained through use of alternating traffic flow from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, the state Department of Transportation announced.

The closure is necessary to reconstruct and repave Kuhio Highway.

It is necessary to do this work during the day due to the shearwater fledgling season, which runs from Sept. 15 to Dec. 15.

All work is weather-permitting. Should construction go according to schedule, the work will be completed in early October.
