By Wendy Osher
Maui Motorists are advised of several road work projects planned this month in Kula, Kihei and Wailuku. The projects are under the County of Maui jurisdiction and will result in traffic advisories beginning this month. The projects are as follows:
Kula Pavement Restoration: Sept. 19 – Dec. 13, 2011
Pavement restoration is planned in Kula along Holomakani Drive and Holomakani Place. The project includes the installation of two inches of recycled asphalt pavement. One lane of contra flow traffic will be in effect along Holomakani Drive during construction hours. The project begins on September 19 and continues through December 13.
Wailuku Drain & Sidewalk Work: Sept. 19 – Oct. 10, 2011
County crews will work to install a trench drain and sidewalk culvert along a portion of the Maui Sporting Goods building in Wailuku. Work will affect about 80 feet of sidewalk along Market and Vineyard streets. County officials say motorists can expect occasional traffic delays during construction deliveries. While pedestrian traffic will be permitted, caution is advised. Work on the project runs from September 19 to October 10.
Kihei Roundabout Construction: Sept. 26 – Nov. 1, 2011
Roundabout construction work in Kihei will force the closure of Liloa Drive from September 26 to November 1. During the construction period, Liloa will be closed between Piikea Avenue and Lipoa Street. Residents of Piilani Gardens will be allowed access to Lipoa Street. Pedestrian traffic is also allowed, but caution is advised.
