Lihue Airport to have fewer public parking spaces starting October 24

Posted on Oct 19, 2022 in Airports News, Main, News

LIHUE – The Hawai‘i Department of Transportation-Airports Division (HDOT-A) alerts the public the Lihue Airport (LIH) Public Parking Lot Repaving Project will formally begin phase 2 on Monday, October 24.

There will be milling, new asphalt, and striping work on the remainder of the main public parking lot. This final phase will take approximately three weeks to be completed by Saturday, November 12, weather permitting.

During this timeframe, the public is strongly encouraged to consider having a family, friend, or Taxi/Uber/Lyft drop you off/pick-up when possible.

The project will include micro phases to allow the public and employee parking lots to remain open during construction, but there will be less parking available during the work. And please note that the entrances and exits into and out of the parking lot may change to accommodate work zones. A color-coded phasing map is included here.

When a zone is shut down it will be out of service for 24 hours. To ensure vehicles do not inadvertently park in a restricted zone where construction is planned, 36-hour prior notices will be placed by the contractor. They will post barricades, signage, and yellow caution tape around the perimeter of each phase. Any vehicles who attempt to park illegally within a posted and barricaded restricted area, may be towed at owner’s expense.
