Utility work to begin Sunday in Wailuku

The Maui News

Utility work on Main Street near Church Street in Wailuku begins Sunday and will affect traffic in the area, the Department of Management said Wednesday.

Infrastructure improvements include utility replacement, upgrades and other electrical work and road paving and is expected to last until June, county spokesman Brian Perry said. The work by contractor MIRA Image Construction is part of Phase 1A of the Wailuku parking structure project.

Work will occur after peak traffic hours and on weekends. Motorists can expect lane closures and detours during the project’s duration. Motorists should consider alternate routes and drive with caution within construction areas, Perry said.

Special duty officers will be on-site to help ensure public safety by assisting with lane closures and traffic control. Pedestrians and motorists are advised to proceed with caution through the area.

Road improvements are part of Phase 1A of the Wailuku Town improvements project, which includes a four-level parking garage on the site of the old Wailuku Municipal Parking Lot.

“This project will provide our residents with quality roads, sidewalks, water and sewer lines and drainage systems for decades to come,” Mayor Michael Victorino said. “I thank everyone for their patience while work is ongoing.”

For questions or concerns regarding the road improvement projects, contact MIRA Image Construction’s project engineer Avery Horton at (210) 439-9293 or Superintendent Collin Kaalele (808) 497-9790.
