The Department of Public Works is announcing that construction work for a portion of Weke Road that was damaged by the April flood will begin this week.
The project’s contractor Earthworks Pacific, Inc., will begin construction by hauling heavy equipment and materials in the project area, which may lead to traffic delays.
To accommodate the public, parking will be allowed from the Weke Road-Pilikoa Street intersection to a restricted access sign, along the makai portion of Weke Road. Access beyond the restricted access sign is limited to the residents along the affected section of Weke Road and authorized construction personnel.
Pedestrians are encouraged to use the lateral access along the beach to reach the Hanalei Pier area.
Construction work is scheduled to be complete by May 2019, weather permitting.
