Highway to close for night work

Haleakala Highway will be closed nightly at the intersection of Makawao Avenue from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Tuesday through Thursday, the state Department of Transportation announced.

Complete closure of the intersection at night will clear the work zone of traffic, allowing the contractor to expedite the asphalt milling and paving work and provide increased safety for workers and drivers, the department said. During the closure, Haleakala Highway traffic will be detoured at the Makani Road intersection and at the Kula Highway/Old Haleakala Highway intersection.

Road work will depend on weather.

The department advised motorists to drive with care and observe construction signs.
