Kuhio Highway Emergency Repairs
HDOT crews continue working as quickly as possible to clear and repair Kuhio Highway on Kauai’s North Shore following historic flooding that begin April 14, 2018. Limited single lane access on Kuhio Highway is currently available to local residents, emergency responders, and approved permittees at designated times. Access through the restricted area of Kuhio Highway remains prohibited to visitors and vacation rental customers in the Wainiha and Haena areas until the highway is reopened to all traffic without escorted convoys, which anticipated in December 2018. We thank everyone involved for their patience and kokua as we safely work to restore normalcy for all impacted.
