State crews begin emergency repair work next week to restore damaged sections of the Hana Highway.

Repairs will begin on Monday, July 16, 2012, and will include work along the Hana Highway at mileposts 10.4, 14, and 16.

State officials say the highway was damaged during the heavy rains in March of this year.

The Hana Highway will remain open during construction, but may be limited to one lane at each construction work site while repairs are being made.


Work hours are from 6 a.m. until 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, with night and weekend work as needed. Repairs are expected to be completed by February 2013, weather permitting.


Motorists are advised to expect delays and use caution while driving through the work zones. Traffic control measures will be in place during work hours.
