24-Hour One Lane Closure of Ali'i Drive near Oneo Bay will be in effect beginning Tuesday, February 11th, 2020 for the remainder of Sinkhole Repairs
Last week the Hawaii County Department of Public Works commenced repairs to Ali‘i Drive fronting Coconut Grove Marketplace due to a sinkhole that developed in late December.
Initially, it was determined that traffic would be reduced to one lane of alternating travel between Hualālai and Walua Roads from 7 a.m. to sunset Monday through Friday.
However, due to construction conditions encountered during the repairs, starting Tuesday, February 11, 2020, the road will be reduced to one lane of alternating travel 24 hours a day for the duration of the project. It’s possible that Ali‘i Drive may be completely closed within the work zone if the road becomes unstable during excavation work.
Road crews may also work on Saturdays to ensure the repairs are completed as expeditiously as possible.
Motorists are advised to be aware of traffic delays and to drive with caution in the work zone. Signs will be posted on Ali‘i Drive advising motorists of the roadwork and traffic signals will be installed on Ali‘i Drive at either end of Coconut Grove Marketplace to facilitate traffic flow.
DPW apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause and thanks the community for their patience and understanding.
