State postpones Makapuu road closures this week
The state Department of Transportation will postpone nighttime closures of Kalanianaole Highway between the Ka Iwi Scenic Lookout and Makapuu Beach Park Wednesday through Friday to allow for project inspections.
The closures will resume Sunday at 9:30 p.m. until 5:30 the following morning.
The state on Nov. 29 began nighttime closures of the highway for much-needed retaining wall work between the Makapuu Lookout parking lot and the Makapuu Beach Park parking entrance. The $7.8 million project is expected to be completed by fall 2010.
The project will include the construction of a rockfall impact barrier, rehabilitation of a retaining wall, slope stabilization, pavement reconstruction and the installation of electrical cable and conduits.
Motorists are advised to use caution while driving through the work area.
