The Department of Public Works has announced that Maui Paving will be making roadway repairs to Upper Kimo Drive in Kula starting sometime between October 13th and 17th. The work will resurface the road following a Department of Water Supply waterline replacement project earlier this year that took a bit longer than was expected because of weather delays.
Because of the weather delays the contractor had to begin working on another project which was already scheduled. In the meantime, residents who used Upper Kimo Drive on a regular basis were clearly upset about the condition of the road.
“We apologize for the delay, but we certainly understand that the contractor has a schedule to keep and they have been working with us to get Upper Kimo repaired,” said Communication Director Rod Antone. “Thankfully the county was able to coordinate with Maui Paving without losing the funding for the project and repair work can begin this month barring any unforeseen circumstances.”
