Landslides and road damage leave sections of Pi`ilani Highway impassable

Heavy rainfall in East Maui has triggered landslides and roadway damage that have closed multiple sections of Pi`ilani Highway between mile markers 19 in Kahikinui and mile marker 39 in Kipahulu. Department of Public Works crews are responding to the affected areas for repairs, but the affected roadways will remain closed until further notice.

Other road closures may be necessary and extend roadway closures as the department receives reports of several significant and additional damage and washouts along the highway.

Pi`ilani Highway mile marker 19 is just past the Auwahi Wind turbines in the vicinity of Ulupalakua, and mile marker 39 is at the Lelekea culvert crossing in Kipahulu.

Road closure signs have been posted in Hana town, and at the Lelekea culvert crossing. Signs also have been set up in Ulupalakua town and at the Auwahi Wind turbine turnout.

Motorists are advised to avoid the affected road closure areas.

The Department of Public Works appreciates the public’s patience and understanding while roadway repairs are ongoing.
