Motorists reminded Pi`ilani Highway still impassable because of landslides and flood damage

All motorists should avoid travel on Pi`ilani Highway while Department of Public Works crews work to clear remaining landslides and repair roadway damage from recent heavy rainfall.

“I urge everyone to enter and exit Hana by way of Paia and Haiku on Hana Highway while our Maui County Highways Division crews work to clear landslides and make necessary road repairs to Pi`ilani Highway on the southern side of Haleakala,” Mayor Michael Victorino said. “Crews are working diligently. But there is significant road damage, and repairs will take time. We thank motorists for their patience and understanding.”

As of late Wednesday afternoon, the highway was closed for 1.5 miles from mile marker 35.5 in Kaupo to mile marker 37 in Kipahulu. The Department of Public Works reported good progress in making repairs Wednesday, after a survey of damage on Tuesday found significant damage at culverts and numerous remaining landslides.

Department of Public Works crews are continuing to respond affected areas for repairs. Residents are now able to travel as far as the Lelekea culvert from the Hana side of the highway, but motorists are not able to make it through the 1.5-mile closed highway. It remains closed until further notice. 

Road closure signs have been posted to advise motorists not to venture into the area. 

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