URGENT: Road Closure, Maalaea Harbor Area, 05-18-18 4 PM

A motorcyclist had an accident at about 3 PM, on the highway near Maalaea. He was in or near the turn lane leading from the highway down to Maalaea Harbor.

As a result of the accident, the Lahaina bound lanes are closed at this time. Wailuku bound lanes are being diverted through Maalaea Harbor and then onto the highway. Again, this is on the Wailuku side of the Pali, not on the Pali.

Kihei people trying to go to Lahaina are being stopped at the Kihei Junction. If you have a flight out tonight I'd be getting on the road soon from the West side.

If you have plans in Lahaina tonight I'd call and cancel them. This is likely a fatality and will require a lot of time to manage and investigate.

Hopefully MPD will get extra personnel in to manage some kind of contraflow for people needing to get to Lahaina.

1 1/2 hours door to door, not bad at all. Especially in rush hour!
