The Kauai Bus offers modified routes during Kalihiwai Bridge closure | News
The Kauai Bus will be offering modified service to and from Princeville and Hanalei on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week due to the scheduled closure of the Kalihiwai Bridge in Kilauea.
The Kalihiwai Bridge will be closed between 5p.m. and 7 p.m. on both Tuesday, April 3 and Wednesday, April 4. To accommodate the closure, The Kauai Bus announces the following route modifications:
- The Route 500 bus scheduled to leave Lihue at 3:25 p.m. will be transferring all Hanalei-bound passengers onto a shuttle at the Kilauea Gym. This shuttle will serve as the last bus into Hanalei prior to the road closure, arriving in Hanalei at about 4:50 p.m.
- The Route 500 buses scheduled to leave Lihue at 3:55 p.m., 4:25 p.m. and 5:25 p.m. must end in Kilauea.
- The Route 400 buses must begin from Kilauea to Lihue, leaving Kilauea at 5:31 p.m. and 6:31 p.m.
- During the road closure, bus service between Hanalei and Princeville will be provided as scheduled, with the exception of the 5:10 p.m. Princeville to Hanalei run which has been cancelled.
The State Department of Transportation earlier announced the Kalihiwai Bridge closure due to a tree trimming and removal process that is causing a potential safety hazard along the bridge as a result of the heavy rains that occurred on Kauai last month.
