Lane, road closures extended on westside of Kaua‘i

KALAHEO — A number of lane closures on the westside of Kaua‘i have been extended until the end of June.

The Department of Water (DOW) and its contractor, Hawaiian Dredging Construction Company, Inc. said that intermittent lane closures and closure notices have been approved for a longer period of time for Pu‘uwai Road and Po‘ohiwi Road in Kalaheo.

The closures are necessary as part of the Kalaheo Water Systems Improvements Project, which calls for work on a waterline. All work is weather permitting.

Motorist and residents are urged to follow all signs and posted flaggers. Posted signs can be found at the following locations:

Partial lane closures will be in place on Pu’uwai Road, between the intersection of Po‘ohiwi Road and the intersection of Kikala Road, from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and on the north-end of Pu‘uwai Road near Pu‘ulima Road from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Additionally, intermittent lane closures will be implemented along Pu‘uwai Road as work progresses through the area.

A road closure is being implemented on Pu’uwai Road from the intersection of Pu’ulima Road to the end of Pu’uwai Road, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This portion of Pu’uwai Road is an unpaved road, without residential or commercial dwellings, therefore, no vehicle or pedestrian access and no parking will be allowed in the work zone. Road closure signs and barriers will be posted.

Due to the narrow roadway, access will be granted to local traffic only on Po‘ohiwi Road during the hours of 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday to Friday. Additionally, the following road work schedule is currently in place for Po‘ohiwi Road and will continue through June 30.

For further information or questions, please contact the DOW at 808-245-5461 or 808-245-5411.
