Umi Street from Sept. 30 to Jan. 10
LIHU’E – The Department of Public Works and Kiewit Infrastructure West Co. are
announcing that construction will continue westbound on Rice Street, closing the right hand lane to traffic while the permanent traffic configuration is constructed. Work will be from Sept. 30 to Jan. 10, weather permitting.
Part of Phase 1D of the Lihu’e Town Core Mobility and Revitalization project, the scope of reconstruction work for Rice Street consists of demolition and grading for sidewalks, parking, and driveway reconstruction; installation of drainage structures and improvements; and roadway reconstruction.
Work will still be occurring on the southside of the road, however, at least one lane of traffic will be maintained each way on Rice Street at all times.
Motorists are encouraged to allow for extra travel time when driving near the work areas, use alternate routes, and to observe and follow all construction traffic controls. Please exercise caution when commuting through the work areas. Access to businesses along Rice Street will be maintained during construction.
