Road work prompts Alii Drive lane closure

One lane of Alii Drive will be closed fronting King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Hotel on Tuesday.

The closure is needed for the County of Hawaii Department of Public Works Highways Maintenance Division to conduct roadwork in the area due to a sinkhole that developed over the weekend.

Work is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., weather conditions permitting.

While the work is being performed, traffic will be reduced to one lane of alternating travel. Traffic control personnel will direct traffic. Motorists are advised to drive with caution through the work zone.
