Bunker Totally under Repair Is Ground under Repair and Part of Through the Green. Play ProhibitedRoG, Definitions Ground under Repair, Rule 25-1b(i) and 25-1c (i); Decision 25/13. Temporary Local Rule. Revised 2013-06-25.
IN DEPTH: From Decision 25/13: "If a bunker is being renovated and the Committee defines the entire bunker as ground under repair, the bunker loses its status as a hazard and is automatically classified as through the green. Therefore, unless the Committee specifically states otherwise, Rule 25-1-b(i) applies, not Rule 25-1b(ii)". 
 
The Committee may define a whole bunker, which for exemple is built, renovated or returfed as ground under repair, as part of through the green from which play is prohibited. Such a bunker may be identified by blue-white stakes placed inside the bunker. A player whose ball lies in or touches the bunker or if the bunker interferes with the players stance or the intended swing must take relief, without penalty under Rule 25-1b(i). If it is known or virtually certain that a ball that has not been found is in the bunker the player may take relief without penalty under Rule 25-1c (i). 

Note that the Local Rule ought to be displayed at the bunker.
