Posted on Oct 3, 2018 in Latest News

LIHUE – The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) announces the following modifications to the mid-day convoy schedule for limited local access to the communities of Wainiha and Haena on the north shore of Kauai to take effect beginning Monday, Oct. 15, 2018.

In response from the north shore community, these changes have been made to specifically accommodate students from Hanalei School. HDOT will be adjusting the mid-day convoy times 15 minutes from:

Monday through Saturday (IN EFFECT 10/15)

• 12:30 PM Wainiha to Hanalei
• 1:00 PM Hanalei to Wainiha

• 1:15 PM Hanalei to Wainiha
• 1:45 PM Wainiha to Hanalei

HDOT continues work on emergency repairs to Kuhio Highway because of the severe weather events in April 2018. The previous estimate to have repairs significantly completed was the end of the year, however with additional storm events, like Lane and Olivia, the completion timeline is being reevaluated.

The other convoy times will remain unchanged.

Please note that construction activities Monday through Saturday may sometimes result in slight delays to the schedule as the crews button up the work zones to make it safe for vehicles to pass, but the convoy will not leave prior to the scheduled time.

Shuttle times for the shuttle operated by the Hanalei Colony Resort are not included on this schedule.

HDOT has coordinated with Department of Education (DOE) to provide access to school buses by providing contractor passes for the middle school and high school buses. In the mornings, the elementary school bus will travel into Wainiha on the 6:20 a.m. convoy and out of Wainiha on the 6:50 a.m. convoy; the middle and high school buses will head into Wainiha, traveling on their own, and will leave Wainiha for Hanalei at 6:20 a.m. In the afternoons, all DOE buses will travel in with the 2 p.m. convoy and back out using the contractor passes.
