Lahaina Paunau Subdivision Pavement Preservation Project to Begin
By Maui Now Staff
Motorists in West Maui are advised of sealcoat work planned in the Paunau subdivision, that is scheduled to start on Thursday, Oct. 2, and continue through late November, 2014.
The Maui department of Public Works announced the work today saying area residents have been notified of road closures.
Residents have been asked to remove all vehicles from the roadway and shut off all irrigation systems during work hours.
Affected roads include Paunau Street, Pauoa Street, Pauwala Place, Pupu Place, Pāʻūʻū Place and Kuai Place.
County officials say the West Maui Senior Center, which is lcated on Pauoa Street, will not be affected during this phase of the sealcoating project.
The sealcoating, which is part of the county’s pavement preservation program, will result in restricted traffic, which will be reduced to one lane in most areas. For some cul-de-sac work, entire streets may be closed and access to driveways will not be available for about four to six hours while the road dries.
This phase of pavement preservation work will cost about $30,000.
County officials say the sealcoat extends the life of the road by an estimated three to six years.
