Transport of oversize equipment to Kalapana requires road closures

The state Department of Transportation said there may be traffic delays today as heavy machinery is transported from the vicinity of Waikoloa Road to Kalapana for use in preparation of Lower Puna evacuation routes.

Intermittent road closures are scheduled from approximately 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. from Waikoloa Road to Kalapana at the end of Highway 130. Waikoloa Road, Saddle Road, Puainako Street, Highway 11 and Highway 130 will be affected by intermittent road closures.

Motorists are advised to drive with caution and expect delays as police escorts will have to block the entire roadway in certain areas to allow for the large transport trucks to safely transverse this route to the final destination at Kalapana.

Further questions on today’s transport operation can be directed to Hawaii District Engineer Donald Smith at 933-8866.
