In anticipation of Hurricane Douglas making its arrival in Hawai‘i this weekend, the County of Hawai‘i Department of Public Works announces that public access to Waipi‘o Valley will be closed from 7:00 a.m. Saturday, July 25 until further notice.
Special duty officers and Waipi‘o Valley Rangers will be on site at the top of the road leading into the valley, to ensure that valley access is restricted to local traffic only (residents, land owners, and farmers). Local traffic will be allowed to pass through a single-vehicle at a time.
The County of Hawai‘i thanks the community for their cooperation in efforts to keep everyone safe as the storm approaches.
If there are any questions or concerns, please call the Department of Public Works at 961-8321.
