Summit parking lot to briefly close today

A road-paving project is expected to close the Haleakala National Park’s summit visitor center parking lot from 11 a.m. to noon today, park officials announced.

Park visitors should anticipate traffic delays of up to 15 minutes between the Summit District’s headquarters visitor center and the park summit. Road construction was scheduled from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Sunrise visitors should have minimal impact from the roadwork.

Construction is scheduled for completion Sept. 30.
