WAILUKU – Motorists are advised that traffic on Hana Highway in Hana Town will be stopped intermittently to allow tree removal work to be conducted next week. Work will begin Monday, Oct. 27 and could last until Thursday, October 30, weather permitting.
The tree removal will involve five Cook Pine trees and 11 Ironwood trees on County-maintained Right-of-Way along Hana Highway. The trees are decaying and are at risk of falling.
The work will be located along Hana Highway just south of Mill Place and Haneoo Road, near Hasegawa General Store. Crews will need to close the road for about 15 to 20 minutes at a time to ensure that trees are removed safely. Whenever possible, one lane will be opened to restore the flow of traffic.
Replacement trees will be planted where appropriate.
The public’s patience and understanding is appreciated. For more information, contact County Arborist David Sakoda at 270-7952.
