The culvert is located near the Old Suda Store location.
The work involves the installation of 3/4 inch steel plates over the culvert to relieve stress on the deteriorating structure.
The repairs will require a complete road closure of that portion of South Kihei Road from approximately 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. on September 3.
During the road closure, motorists will not be able to access South Kihei Road from the north (Old Suda Store). Instead, motorists will be routed onto Piilani Highway.
Motorists approaching from the south will be detoured onto Uwapo Road.
The County of Maui thanks motorists for their patience and understanding during the repairs.
UPDATE: One person is dead following a plane crash in waters off Kalaupapa, Molokai, according to Maui Fire Department officials.

Meals will not be prepared at Waipahu Elementary School. At least, not until the state figures out why 42 people, mostly children, became sick after lunch on Tuesday.
