Bus offers modified routes for Kalihiwai Bridge closure

The Kauai Bus will offer modified service to and from Princeville and Hanalei today and Wednesday due to the scheduled closure of the Kalihiwai Bridge in Kilauea.

The Kalihiwai Bridge will be closed between 5 p.m.. and 7 p.m. today and Wednesday for tree trimming and removal as a result of the heavy rains that fell on Kaua‘i last month.

To accommodate the closure, The Kauai Bus announces the following route modifications:

• The Route 500 bus scheduled to leave Lihu‘e at 3:25 p.m. will be transferring all Hanalei-bound passengers onto a shuttle at the Kilauea Gym. This shuttle will serve as the last bus into Hanalei prior to the road closure, arriving in Hanalei at about 4:50 p.m.

• The Route 500 buses scheduled to leave Lihu‘e at 3:55 p.m., 4:25 p.m. and 5:25 p.m. must end in Kilauea.

• The Route 400 buses must begin from Kilauea to Lihu‘e, leaving Kilauea at 5:31 p.m. and 6:31 p.m.

• During the road closure, bus service between Hanalei and Princeville will be provided as scheduled, with the exception of the 5:10 p.m. Princeville to Hanalei run, which has been canceled.
