Hana road in Kipahulu to close for repairs

The Maui News

A portion of Hana Highway about half a mile on the Hana side of Haleakala National Park in Kipahulu will be closed from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday to Wednesday as part of a project to repair damage from a landslide, the Department of Public Works announced.

It will be a full road closure, meaning traffic will not be permitted through the area during working hours. Motorists will be advised of road closures by electronic message boards – one located in Hana town and one at Ulupalakua Ranch. People who drive the route routinely have received advance notification of the closures.

Roadwork includes excavation, the pouring of hot mix asphalt pavement sections, installation of sections of wire mesh with soil/rock anchors, erosion control matting and hydromulch seeding.

Tom’s Backhoe and Excavation is the contractor for the $836,071 project.
