Highway road improvements continue in the Lumahai Beach area between Hanalei and Haena. Stabilization and a new wall have just been completed at the “Nurse’s Beach” lookout. Now, State Department of Transportation contractors are busy cutting back an entire hillside just west as pictured. Unique equipment can be seen crawling up the steep slope preparing for more concrete stabilization. This will result in a safer and smoother highway through this area soon. Traffic has been reduced to one lane during the day but the delays have been minimal.
Soon the road to Haena above Lumahai Beach will be even more memorable to drive.
