HANALEI — The state Department of Transportation reported that nighttime closures at Waipa and Waikoko bridges originally scheduled for earlier this week were scheduled.
The full nighttime closure started Thursday. The road reopened to those with county-issued placards on the established weekday schedule at 5:30 this morning. No bridge closures are scheduled tonight due to the Kapaa High School and Kauai High School graduations, nor over this long Memorial Day weekend.
Waipa and Waikoko bridges will close to all vehicular traffic at the start of the night work. Park-and-ride sites, pedestrian access, and a shuttle between the park-and-ride and Wainiha is available for placard-holders. The shuttle is available until 11 p.m.
