Papa Avenue Road Reconstruction Continues
By Wendy Osher
The north-bound lane of Papa Avenue is temporarily closed between Kea and One Street from Monday, Sept. 8, through Friday, Sept. 12, as crews work on road reconstruction, according to traffic signage in the area.
The section of road is located between Kea, north of Lihikai Elementary School, and One Street near the Ala Lani United Methodist Church.
Various stages of the project stretch along Papa Avenue between Kaʻahumanu and Puʻunēnē Avenues.
Maui Master Builders submitted a low bid for the project in November 2013, according to Building Industry Magazine.
The company began work on the project on Aug. 25 for the section of road between Makaliʻi Street and Hina Avenues. Last week, work included a portion of Papa Avenue between Hina and Kahiki Street.
Motorists are advised to expect delays and drive with caution in the latest road work area.
