Motorists are advised of upcoming night-time roadwork in Waimea as part of road improvements to Mamalahoa Highway.
Starting at 6 p.m. Sunday, traffic on Mamalahoa Highway, between the intersections of Hohola Drive and Pu’u Nani Drive, will be reduced to one lane day and night, except for morning and evening commute times, according to the County of Hawaii Department of Public Works Engineering Division.
The single lane of alternating travel will be in effect from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. through 3 p.m. Friday
Work will consist of removal of the existing road, excavation, installation of new road subbase and base, paving, and temporary striping.
There will be two traffic control flag personnel directing traffic 24 hours a day and message boards will also alert area motorists about the upcoming roadwork, according to the county.
During nonconstruction hours all motorists, bikers, and pedestrians using Mamalahoa Highway should expect to traverse aggregate roadways with temporary ramps in locations that change daily.
Questions or concerns should be directed to Brandon Adams at Goodfellow Brothers Inc. at (808) 887-6511.
