HAWAII KAI, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - East Oahu drivers should anticipate major road closures for the remainder of the month. Road work on Kalanianaole Highway will force crews to close the highway four times, the Department of Transportation announced on Wednesday.
Kalanianaole Highway will close in both directions between Hanauma Bay and Sandy Beach from 9:30 p.m. to 3 a.m. every Friday in May. The closure dates are: May 6, May 13, May 20 and May 27.
The closure is so crews can restripe the lanes and replace some signs and utilities.
Drivers are advised to instead take Lunalilo Home Road, Hawaii Kai Drive and Kealahou Street around the construction zone.
Emergency vehicles and the city bus will be allowed through the work zone.
