Public Notice of Expected Traffic Disruption in Kula, Ulupalakua, 

and East Maui on Tue., Nov. 9


Goodfellow Brothers, LLC and the County of Maui’s Department of Public Works notify the public that during the pre-dawn hours of Tue., Nov, 9, a lowboy truck carrying an oversized load, with leading and trailing escort vehicles, will leave Waikapu bound for Keokea Park. 


From Keokea, the convoy will proceed through Ulupalakua, Piilani Highway, and Hana Highway bound for Mile Marker Post 43 between Hana and Kaupo. Estimated time of arrival is 12 noon. Traffic is expected to be impeded to accommodate transport of a 6' by 45' load of bulky bridge components. 


Motorists should choose an alternate route or anticipate long delays due to traffic disruption. Visitors planning to visit Hana that day should return to Central Maui by way of Hana Highway (not Piilani Highway) to avoid the area.


The Department of Public Works is installing a temporary pre-engineered steel bridge over the existing Mahalawa Bridge and constructing paved ramps and guardrails at both approaches to the bridge.


For additional information, call the Department Engineering Office at (808) 270-7745.
