HAWAII KAI, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The state Department of Transportation wants to notify drivers of full overnight closures on a major East Oahu road. Crews will close off Kalanianaole Highway, between Lunalilo Home Road and Kealahou Street, from Dec. 7 through Dec. 12, from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m. Traffic will be detoured in that area.

DOT workers will replace approximately 1,250 feet of rusted guardrail between Hanauma Bay and Sandy Beach. The new guardrails will include an epoxy coating to help protect them from corrosion. The project is estimated to cost $170,000.

The DOT urges drivers to plan ahead and adjust travel times.
