Construction work to affect highway
Roadwork in West Maui this week will affect traffic on Honoapiilani Highway in two areas, according to the state Department of Transportation.
Single-lane closures in both directions between Kuniau Road and Kaanapali Parkway will occur Wednesday night through Friday morning, from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. daily, for pavement resurfacing.
The highway between Front Street and Kai Hele Ku will continue to be shifted mauka until repairs can be made to ocean erosion damage that has undermined the shoulder lane foundation.
Motorists are advised to expect delays as speed limits will be reduced approaching the work zone.
