Checkpoints for roadways to Hana

Road checkpoints on the roadways to Hana will be located after Twin Falls on Hana Highway and at Ulupalakua Ranch on Piilani Highway.

The checkpoints will help protect isolated communities with limited medical resources by restricting road traffic to East Maui residents only.

"These checkpoints were requested by our East Maui community and I want to mahalo Sen. J Kalani English for helping to coordinate this effort," Mayor Michael Victorino said.

An official placard is available to East Maui residents to help streamline the checkpoint, however, this placard is NOT mandatory.

Residents may pick up a placard at:

  • Hana Post Office
  • Hana Police Station
  • Hasegawa General Store
  • Hana Health
  • Hana Ranch Store
  • Hana Pit Stop (Gas Station)
  • Ulupalakua Ranch Office from 7 a.m. - 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.

For more information, you may call Sen. J Kalani English’s Office at (808) 587-7225 or the Council Services Hana District Office at (808) 248-7513.

Travelers will be required to show:

  • License
  • Registration
  • Proof of Insurance
  • Reason for Travel or Placard

NOTE: Please be prepared to show documents to police at the checkpoint so they do not need to touch the documents and can move traffic along faster.
