A momentary road closure on Hāna Highway, between mile markers 10 and 12, on Wednesday, April 13, 2022 is canceled and traffic will no longer be impacted for utility work taking place due to a modified helicopter route and staging area.

For crews to safely make the upgrades, a planned service interruption is still required and will affect about 180 customers in the East Maui area. Affected customers are being directly notified.
