Update: Kīpahulu District of Haleakalā National Park Closure Postponed
The Kīpahulu District of Haleakalā National Park will remain open this weekend from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Maui Department of Public Works road closure along Hāna Highway has been postponed.
A weather disturbance near Hawaiʻi Island, and a threat of heavy rain throughout the state, has postponed planned work on the Mahalawa Bridge at Mile Marker Post 43 on Piʻilani Highway this weekend. Goodfellow Brothers, LLC and the County of Maui’s Department of Public Works expect the work to be rescheduled in January of 2022.
Due to the possibility of road washouts caused by flooding, visitors planning to visit Hāna during the rainy weather should return to Central Maui by way of Hāna Highway (not Piʻilani Highway).
The Department of Public Works apologized for any inconvenience to the public.
The Kīpahulu District of Haleakalā National Park will be temporarily closed over the weekend on Saturday, Dec. 4, 2021 and Sunday, Dec. 5, 2021.
The temporary Kīpahulu District closure is due to a complete road closure by Maui Department of Public Works along Hāna Highway, 1.5 miles east of the park entrance.
There will be no vehicular access to the Kīpahulu District from Hāna during this road closure, and consequently, emergency services would be delayed and likely unavailable within the park. The closure is being implemented to protect visitor and employee safety.
The Kīpahulu District of Haleakalā National Park will reopen on Monday, Dec. 6, 2021 at 9 am. The Summit District of Haleakalā National Park remains open.
