Kaupakalua Road to close for repaving

A portion of Kaupakalua Road in Haiku will be closed from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday for pavement reconstruction work, the county Department of Public Works announced Wednesday.

The full road closure will affect Kaupakalua Road from Lepo Street to Pakanu Street.

Road closure detour locations are at Ulumalu, the Five Corners intersection and East Kuiaha Road. Drivers should use alternative routes through the area, the county said.

Maui Paving LLC is the contractor on the second phase of a project to reconstruct Kaupakalua Road from East Kuiaha Road to Hana Highway. Work on the project began in early October, with completion set for late June.

The work includes removing existing pavement and installing new reinforced asphalt concrete pavement. Other work involves installing new pavement striping and markers, adjusting manholes and covers and removing and replacing guardrails and road signs.
