The Department of Public Works’ (DPW) Highway Division is working to remove a large leaning tree from Laupahoehoe Point Road next week, and the road will be closed from Monday, June 3 through Wednesday, June 5, as the work progresses. Local traffic only will be allowed access during that time.
DPW staff will be setting up message boards on Thursday, May 30, and will be going house-to-house to notify residents.
In the meantime, crews have already begun trimming the branches of the 130-foot ironwood tree, which is partially uprooted and leaning over the road.
DPW appreciates the community’s patience, and will make every effort to expedite the tree’s removal.
For further information, please call the Department of Public Works at 961-8321.
