KEANAE – The Hawai‘i Department of Transportation (HDOT) is providing notice of its intent to declare a traffic emergency zone on Hana Highway (Route 360) between mile post 9.7 and 9.9 in the vicinity of Waikamoi Stream for emergency rockfall mitigation work. This notice is pursuant to Hawai‘i Revised Statutes Section 264.1.5.
