This is a Civil Defense road closure update for Saturday, August 25 at 6:00 in the evening.

The National Weather Service reports that the Flash Flood Warning remains in effect for Hawaii Island. Rain will continue through the weekend so please be careful when travelling on the roads. Closures may occur without any notice.

For your additional information:

  • The United States Postal Service reports that all post offices except Pepeekeo Post Office will deliver mail tomorrow. However, there are no retail services or mail pickup from blue USPS mail boxes.
  • State Highways reports that Highway 19 at mile marker 28-29 (Kaawalii Gulch) remains closed. This closure is to allow crews to remove a dangerous boulder from the hillside. It is unknown at this time how long the highway will be closed.
  • State Highways has installed a temporary traffic light on Highway 11 near mile marker 30 (Volcano Golf Course) due to a one lane closure. This closure will allow crews to make repairs to earthquake and flood damaged sections of the highway. Repairs are expected to last about two weeks.
