Project Progress Continues!
Project contractors successfully completed the night work on Waipa Bridge this week. Additional night closures will be required in the upcoming weeks. The project continues to make progress towards its goals of substantially completing the Kuhio Highway road repairs by April 30, 2019 and substantially completing the repairs to Wai‘oli, Waipa, and Waikoko Bridges by May 31, 2019. HDOT and the project team are actively working with the County of Kauai, other agencies, and stakeholders to develop a plan to safely reopen the Kuhio Highway to the public when the road repairs are substantially completed.  
The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) announces the closure of Kuhio Highway (Route 560) to all traffic between the Waikoko and Wainiha checkpoints from 8:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Friday, March 15, 2019. This closure is needed to ensure safety during the installation of slope stabilization measures. On Friday, March 15th, crews will resume flying in a Tecco mesh system above the highway. All traffic, regardless of passes, must be cleared off the highway during the installation for their own safety.
