Hawaii County Department of Public Works is planning additional traffic pattern changes in the area of Palani Road and Henry Street.
On Monday, April 9, Kamakaeha street at the Palani Road intersection will open. That’s the road that goes into Makalapua Shopping Center from Palani Road and leads into the Macy’s end of the shopping center. The mauka-bound lane is scheduled to remain closed on this day.
On Tuesday, April 10, the County will reopen Palani Street mauka bound from Queen Ka’ahumanu Highway, so both mauka and makai lanes will be open. But the intersection of Henry Street at the Palani Rd intersection will close and remain closed until April 19 as work on the intersection continues.
To get to any of the businesses on Henry Street (Safeway, Walmart, etc.) motorists will have to enter Henry Street from Queen Ka’ahumanu Highway.
