A $8.9 million road rehabilitation project kicked off in Maili on Monday, and residents are being urged to prepare for traffic back-ups.
Some 33.36 miles of roadway will be repaved as part of the project. Crews will also be trimming tree canopies and pruning roots.
Work will be restricted to 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, with possible work on Saturdays.
Drivers are being urged to observe posted traffic signs and look out for special duty police officers.
“Leeward Coast residents spend a lot of time in their vehicles, and they deserve roads that are smooth and free of potholes,” Mayor Kirk Caldwell said, in a news release. “This is the next phase of our Leeward repaving projects, with Nanakuli and Waianae already well underway. Although there will be some inconveniences, once this latest project is pau, residents in Maiili and nearby Leeward communities will have the roads they deserve.”
Contractor Grace Pacific is performing the work. For questions about traffic managements, call 829-1902.
