Lane closures will be adjusted during the initial phase of a road improvement project on Kamehameha Avenue because of a 12” water main that was broken during construction.

All four east- and west-bound lanes of Kamehameha Avenue between Alamaha and Hoohana streets will be closed temporarily; however, access is expected to remain available to all area businesses.

The east-bound lanes will be closed until construction issues related to the broken water main are resolved.  County officials say an updated timetable of scheduled lane closures will be released after a thorough examination of the affected area is completed.

Road work on the 4-month $1.36 million project began on Sunday and is expected to conclude in mid-August. The project involves reconstructing Kamehameha Avenue between Puunene Avenue and Hana Highway.

Motorists are asked to exercise caution when traveling near the project area and to observe all traffic control signs.
