By­pass south­ern ter­mi­nus to open Mon­day

The Maui News - - TODAY’S PEOPLE -

The south­ern ter­mi­nus of the La­haina by­pass will open about 6 a.m. Mon­day, the state Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion an­nounced.

All north­bound traf­fic will be routed to the by­pass at the south­ern ter­mi­nus, which starts at “cut moun­tain” near Olowalu. Honoapi­ilani High­way in the vicin­ity of the south­ern ter­mi­nus will be con­tra-flowed be­tween 3 to 6 a.m. to pre­pare for the open­ing.

Traf­fic head­ing south to­ward Maalaea will need to turn left onto Kai Hele Ku Street to ac­cess the by­pass.

The sec­tion of Honoapi­ilani High­way three-quar­ters of a mile south from Kai Hele Ku Street (mauka of Lau­ni­upoko Beach Park) will be closed for three weeks while work­ers com­plete the south­ern con­nec­tor road from the high­way to the by­pass. A story printed Mon­day in­cor­rectly re­ported the traf­fic flow along the high­way dur­ing this time.

Pedes­trian ac­cess to the beach from Kai Hele Ku Street to the start of the work zone at the south­ern con­nec­tor road will be open dur­ing the clo­sure.

The 2.7-mile, $38.7 mil­lion phase of the by­pass was blessed Sun­day.
