LIHUE >> The Lihue-bound lane of Kuhio Highway at mile marker 1 — the hill before Hanalei Bridge — is now open, the state Department of Transportation announced Friday.
The lane had been closed since May 7 as crews conducted flood damage repairs.
Crews will continue working from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays with a single lane closure with alternating traffic control and flagmen. A closure for tree trimming and vegetation control will occur 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday and Tuesday.
The DOT is advising motorists of potential delays as vehicles exit and enter the work zones.
