WAILUKU – The Department of Public Works is notifying motorists that seal-coat work in the West Maui Paunau subdivision is expected to affect traffic during October and November, 2014. Work is scheduled to begin Thursday, October 2, 2014 and be completed in late November.
Area residents have been notified about the road closures and have been asked to remove all vehicles off the roadway and shut off all irrigation systems during working hours. Affected roads include Paunau Street, Pauoa Street, Pauwala Place, Pupu Place, Pauu Place and Kuai Place. The West Maui Senior Center, which is located on Pauoa Street, will not be affected during this phase of the seal-coating project.
The seal-coating, which is part of the county’s pavement preservation program, will restrict traffic to one lane and for some cul-de-sac work, entire streets may be closed and access to driveways will not be available for about four to six hours while the road dries.
This phase of pavement preservation work will cost about $30,000. The seal-coat extends the life of the road by an estimated three to six years.
The department apologizes for the inconvenience. For more information please call the Public Works Lahaina Highways division at 661-0501 Monday through Friday, between the hours of 6 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
