VIDEO: Lava Clearing On Highway 132 Begins

Hawaiʻi County crews got to work on Monday morning, pushing a path over lava that covered Highway 132 during the 2018 eruption of Kīlauea Volcano.

According to the County, “the near-term goal is to reestablish access over a temporary road to homes and farms in the kipuka (land isolated by recent lava flows) along Highway 132, including connections to Government Beach Road and Lighthouse Road at Four Corners,” according to the latest update on the Kīlauea recovery page.
