The project, which consists of pavement reconstruction and pavement striping/markers, is estimated to be completed in February 2021, weather and construction conditions permitting.
Crews will start paving at the top of Plumeria Street where it intersects with Māmalahoa Highway and work their way down (makai to the intersection of Māmane St. / Honoka‘a-Waipi‘o Valley Road. One lane of alternating travel will be in effect during the day, while the road is being paved.
