WAILUKU, Maui — Repairs to Waiopai Bridge in Hana will impact traffic starting Oct. 8 through late February 2019, especially for Kaupo residents, according to the county Department of Public Works.
The crossing on Piilani Highway between Mileposts 28 and 29 will close completely at night only — from 7 p.m. to 4 a.m. — from Oct. 8 to 22. For those two weeks, the road will be open to daytime two-lane traffic during the other hours (4 a.m. to 7 p.m.). From Oct. 22 to late February, 24-hour one-lane alternating traffic will be available. Construction work will be active from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on weekdays, weather permitting, except for weekends and holidays.
The roughly $1.1 million project awarded to Grace Pacific LLC will replace bridge railings, concrete deck slab and approach metal guardrails, along with other work to the structure, which was built in 1982.
Kaupo residents, who would have to go through Hana to reach Central Maui during complete closures, have been notified of the construction.
